ZAR
Proof Coins
When “President Paul Kruger” had the first indigenous currency of the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek minted by the “Kaiser Mint” in Berlin in 1892, the coinage was to have a similar value to the colonial British currency. Of the total spectrum of denomination, the Kaiser mint also minted a very limited quantity of proof coins, using polished dies and blanks. These very special coins were presented to VIP’s and dignitaries. To own one of these 1892 ZAR proof coins must surely be one of the most prized coins a collector can hope to have in their collection. All 1892 proof coins portray the incorrect coat of arms, that is the double shaft ox wagon.

From the table on the left we can see that the mintages of the 1892 ZAR proof coins are extremely low, and that the maximum complete sets which can exist are between 10 and 12, although there are 5 ZAR proof set known to exist, it is however unknown exactly how many 1892 proof sets exist which have both the Red and Brown penny, but it is believed that no more than 3 of these 1892 proof sets exist.
