South Africa

Often referred to as 'the rainbow nation', South Africa is one of Africa’s most ethnically diverse countries located at the southern tip of the African continent. The geography of South Africa varies from vast scrubland in the interior to the Namib Desert in the northwest and tropics in the southeast. In 2010 the country became the first African nation to host the FIFA World Cup, an event that brought hundreds of thousands of visitors into the country, and successfully boosted the economy.

As a coin issuer, South Africa is known for its Gold Krugerrand considered the world’s first modern bullion gold coin. Released in 1967, this  international symbol of wealth and prestige is still one of the most popular gold coins ever minted.
