South African Gold Krugerrand coins debuted well before any other gold bullion coin. Introduced in 1967, the Krugerrand was available until 1979 with just a 1 oz gold coin. In 1979, the Royal Canadian Mint introduced the Gold Maple Leaf as a competing option for investors. In 1980, the South African Mint responded with the first-ever fractional-ounce gold coins. Among them was the 1/2 oz Gold Krugerrand.
