1900 South Africa Gold Kruger Pond - Last Year / 2nd Type Zar Pond


A1900 South African ZAR Gold Krugerpond with XF-AU details. This is the last year that the Kruger series was issued due to the war taking place and the British capture of Pretoria (where the coins were minted) in June 1900.

As soon as war was declared, the most eminent General in Britain was recalled from semi-retirement to lead the British effort in South Africa. General Frederick Roberts had been critical of the humiliating peace that Britain had accepted after the First Boer War, and the fact that his son had been killed in early fighting during the Second Boer War, strengthened his resolve to see the difficult War through to completion. He required several months to gather and organize forces, but in February 1900 he launched a series of counter-offensives that were highly effective. First Kimberly was relieved, then at the battle of Paardeburg, General Cronje was surrounded and forced to surrender with 4000 men. Finally, Ladysmith was relieved. Roberts continued the offensive, and soon captured Bloemfontein, the capital of the Orange Free State. Mafeking, which had been besieged for over seven months, was finally relieved on May 18th. By June he had captured Pretoria and Johannesburg, the two major cities in the Transvaal republic. By this time, it appeared that the war was won.



Gold is currently $1,605 per ounce giving this coin (.2354 FTO) a bullion value alone of $378.
