Information about mint: South African Mint

South African Mint (1892 - present)

The South African Mint Company (Pty) Limited (SA MINT) is the official mint of the Republic of South Africa with its headquarters in Centurion, Gauteng Province near Pretoria. SA MINT manufactures coins on behalf of the South African Reserve Bank.

Most of the production is of circulation coins and commemorative coins.

The world-famous Krugerrand gold coin has been minted here since 1967 (in a joint operation with the Rand Refinery). From 1996, the Mint has operated a retail outlet and museum at Centurion, Gauteng.

Note that bullion Krugerrands manufactured by the Mint for Rand Refinery are now recorded per annum (January - December). The previous year’s dies are replaced in January with the new date regardless of whether there is still an outstanding amount on order from the previous year. However, earlier mintages (before 2000) may reflect production figures for the year and not true mintage figures as production may have continued into the new year to complete the order from the previous year. Rand Refinery sales graphs reflect yearly sales only; dates on the coins are not taken into consideration.
