If you want to invest in gold to protect your assets against the
current financial turmoil and deflation, gold coins with small
premiums such as Krugerrand will definitely be your No.1 choice. As a
matter of fact, the gold Krugerrand coins, especially the 1 oz
Krugerrand, have been one of the most popular items among Gold
Investors and collectors ever since they were first minted in 1967.
The Krugerrand gold coins were created at low premium over the gold
content. The 1 oz Krugerrand coin would be valued around 4% to 10%
over its gold values.The fractional sizes were issued with higher
premiums. It usually costs 10% to 15% premium for the 1/2 and 1/4 oz
Krugerrand coin, and from 20% to 50% premium for the 1/10 oz coin.
That's the main reason why the 1oz Krugerrand is more popular than the
fractional Krugerrand coins.
