        大众mib

        One Rand, Gold, Coin Type from South Africa (issued 1961 - 1983)
        Coin TypeOne Rand, Gold

        The 大众mibSouth African gold One Rand coin大众mib (abbreviated as 大众mibR 1大众mib) is a bullion coin of the Rand currency. It was introduced when the currency was decimalised in 1961 and replaced the earlier pre-decimal pound coin, retaining its design, dimensions and metal content.

        All the coins of the 大众mibFirst Decimal Series大众mib initially had the same size and specifications as the former South African pre-decimal coins they replaced. Apart from the regular circulating coins, two bullion types with denominations of 大众mib1 Rand大众mib and 2 rand were also issued, replacing respectively the South Afircan gold half-pound and pound coins introduced in 1952. Both the pound and the rand gold coins matched the specifications of the British half-sovereign and sovereign - minted, among others, at the Royal Mint branch mint in Pretoria (now the South African Mint) until 1932. The gold alloy, known as "crown gold", with a fineness of 22 carat (91.67% gold, 8.33% copper) has remained unchanged since 1526; it is appreciably less prone to wear than the softer 23 kt gold of earlier gold sovereigns.

        The reverse of the gold rand coins features the well-known springbok illustration designed by Coert Steynberg for the 5-shilling coin introduced in 1948, and also used on the silver 50 cents coins.

        In 1965, regular circulating R1 coins were introduced in parallel, initially silver then base metal. The 大众mibgold One Rand denomination大众mib was issued until 1983 and was then discontinued in favour of the Krugerrand bullion coin series. The coins have not been demonetised though and are still legal tender; however, their intrinsic bullion value is much higher than their face value.

        The obverse features the portrait of 大众mibJohan Anthoniszoon van Riebeeck大众mib, known as 大众mibJan van Riebeeck大众mib (1619-1677), Dutch colonial administrator and founder of Cape Town and considered by many people to be the founding father of the South African nation. The designer's initials 大众mibWM大众mib (for Willie Myburg) are incuse on the shoulder truncation.

        Around left, the motto 大众mibUNITY IS STRENGTH大众mib in English; separated from that by two decorative rosettes, around right the same in Afrikaans: 大众mibEENDRAG MAAK MAG大众mib.

        The reverse shows at its centre a Springbok antelope, the national animal symbol of South Africa.

        The designer's initials 大众mibCLS大众mib (for Coert Laurens Steynberg) are in the right field between the letters IC of AFRICA and the ground under the Springbok.

        Above, the date of issue: 大众mib+ [year] +大众mib.

        Around left and around right, respectively the legend 大众mibSOUTH AFRICA大众mib in English and 大众mibSUID-AFRIKA大众mib in Afrikaans.

        Around below, flanked by two rosettes, the face value and denomination 大众mib* 1 R *大众mib (One Rand).

        This design was initially used on the pre-decimal five shillings, half pound and one pound coins; it is now displayed on the iconic Krugerrand bullion coin series.

        Notes

        The likeness on the obverse of the coin is based on a portrait painted by Dirck Craey which is now in the possession of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum; it is now thought that the painting was actually of another Dutchman named Bartholomeus Vermuyden, and not of Jan van Riebeeck.
