I was wonder if there are much people that collect ZAR Paul Kruger coins, the numismatic coins, I’ve been working on the collection for sometime now and building up to try and find some good conditioned ones..to add to the collection I’m building up..proof coins are extremely rare and are only minted in the years 1892...especially finding high grade 5 shillings (crowns) they are rare, and abit pricey. Though I must say the ZAR coins have a really nice history to them from the time Paul Kruger was president of South Africa

@Kritika thank you, Certain years are difficult as they where only minted through a 6 year period, from 1892 to 1897.. and that’s the silver Zar coins... there is still the gold ponds and the pennies

This is a great set to collect and, no surprise, I started with the sixpences. I have now sold my gold ponds although I think I still have the silver and bronze issues in VF/EF somewhere. I was planning on upgrading these raw coins to slabbed MS examples (now very expensive) at some point as the series is extremely popular.

@SilverTanner that’s true, for me it’s just finding the best coins to grade which is abit of a trip.. I’ll say it’s one of the most difficult series to collect, especially when you start going in to the 5 shillings and the bronze years

@Tritoon01 lol that abit of a difficult one, what I would suggest though is go on to eBay... there you will get a perceptive of what the pricing is for those coins, specially from well good dealers on eBay, they kind of spot on with their pricings......

yes, you are right.....been on ebay and ngc ...... wow, those prices can differ depending on the quality of the coin !.....are these coins known for fake replicas ? I saw some coins, no idea if they are fake.....not that familiar with these coins....but they are lovely, so I might expand my investment pool ;)

If the coin was to be graded it will probably be a F..... I have see a few replicas but that is only with the 5 shilling coins because they are much rarer. But you can spot out the replicas easily once you start collecting, specially with Paul Kruger’s face and aswell as the lettering... but the ZAR coins is a really good collection to build.
