Built between 1666 and 1679 by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) as a maritime replenishment station, the Castle of Good Hope is the oldest surviving colonial building in South Africa. From 1678 it was the centre of civilian, administrative and military life at the Cape, until the settlement grew and some functions and activities moved away from the Castle. Today the Castle is the seat of the military in the Cape, and houses the Castle Military Museum and Iziko Museums of Cape Town
One Ounce Gold South African Krugerrand (Obverse). This is the world’s first modern bullion Gold coin and remains one of the most popular Gold coins ever minted. The Krugerrand was introduced in 1967 as a vehicle for private ownership of gold. The name itself is a compound of Kruger (the man depicted on the obverse) and rand, the South African unit of currency.
