The Krügerrand collector’s set from 1991 presented here is characterized by its “Proof” (Proof/PP) minting quality and contains four gold coins ranging from one to a tenth of an ounce.
The set is rounded off by an exclusive wooden box. As a unique feature, each coin bears the GRC mark, confirming its minting at the Gold Reef City (GRC) Mint.
The 1991 edition is particularly noteworthy as it ended with a circulation of just 426 copies, marking the final year of GRC’s Krugerrand issuance.
