There has never been a better time to invest in the South African rare coins of the ZAR from the time of President Paul Kruger. All of these coins in the average grades we project will show appreciation levels of 35- 45% per annum over the next 3 – 5 years with the rarer specimens appreciating at percentages of 65% and above.
These coins were minted from 1894 onward and span the rich cultural history of the Boers in the Transvaal. They are widely collected throughout the globe and valued in US dollars. When they are sold they are not subject to capital gains tax. Which means that they are tax free. The key to good investment is to have a diversified portfolio of investments and one of these investments should be South African rare coins. If you have all of your eggs in one basket you can take a very big hit if a particular market has a sharp downturn. These coins are also saleable anywhere in the world.
In 1996 S A COIN introduced the third party grader NGC to South Africa. We steered all of the South African collectors and investors to having their coins graded through to NGC. Today we also recommend the other two largest graders in the world PCGS and ANACS. NGC has graded over 350 000 rare coins for South Africa. South Africa due to the forward thinking of S A COIN over 18 years ago in 1996 is the third most certified country in the world behind only the United States and China. NGC is today the largest coin grading company in the world with over 30 million coins graded
The third party capsules of NGC, PCGS and ANACS create a worldwide market for all rare coins where they can trade freely throughout the world like stocks. The grades of the coins and their authenticity is guaranteed. Second only to the rare coins themselves there is no more significant metric than the third party capsules that the coins are in
The very first commercial coins of South Africa that were produced by the republic of the ZAR (Zuid Afrikaanche Republiek) were dated 1892. It was President Paul Kruger himself that had decided to produce coins for the republic. He was a very strong man both physically and mentally and indeed much larger than life. He wanted to make the ZAR more independent and in so doing he wanted to create a bank for the ZAR and also its own coinage.
