The 2-edge-gold coin can be regarded as a forerunner of the popular Krugerrand. They are traded on all stock exchanges at the current rate (Gold Fixing). The 2-edge-gold coin contains almost a quarter of an ounce, just 7.33 grams of pure gold (in proportion to the total weight or exactly 22 carats 917/1000).
The very warm, intensely shiny gold color and noticeably high weight can already imagine the value of the coin at the first examination.
On the front shows the 2-edge-gold coin of the nominal value of 2 margin, the year of issue, the words "South Africa - Suid Afrika" and the Springbok as the national symbol of the former Boer republic.
Like Unity is Strength Eendrag Maak" (unity is strength) and Jan van Riebeck stamped, founder of Cape Town, pictured on the back is the motto. It will be delivered different stamping years.
