The artwork featured on the Krugerrand coin offers viewers the opportunity to immerse themselves in South Africas rich culture and history. Proudly displayed on the obverse of the coin is a portrait of Paul Kruger. This celebrated figure was the state president of South Africa who would eventually emerge as the primary leader of the Boer resistance in their battle against the British during the Second Boer War. As homage to this brave hero, resident artists have exercised great care in the rendering of his portrait, from his penetrating eyes to his trademark long beard. Printed above Krugers image is the countrys name in both its native language (“Suid Afrika”) and its Anglicized form (South Africa).
Prominently displayed on the reverse side of the coin is South Africas iconic springbok antelope, dashing across the grassy fields of its native habitat. Viewers will undoubtedly appreciate the sense of movement created by its posture and the dynamic angles of its legs. Such details make it appear as though the antelope had been captured in mid-gallop, perhaps in search of food. Flanking opposite sides of the creature are the coins mintage date. The coins weight, purity and series title appear in circular formation along the edge of the coin.
