The first proof Krugerrand's were minted in 1967, however these were not frosted, as we know the proof Krugerrand's of today.

In 1968, 10,000 proof Krugerrand's were minted of which only 1, 044 Krugerrand's were frosted. These coins were only frosted on the reverse. It was only in 1969 that Krugerrand's were frosted on both the obverse and the reverse. The table to the right illustrates proof Krugerrand mintages. As one can see on the table that in 1997 only

1, 663 proof Krugerrand's were minted.

The first truly limited or low mintage Krugerrand's were in actual fact only minted in 1980, being the 1980 proof Krugerrand fractional sets
