#TBT: In 1899 the Kruger Pond/Pound dies were intercepted by the British in Lourenzo Marques. To mark the re-opening of the mint, it was decided to overstamp 1898 ponds with a 99 overstamp below Krugers bust. The first #coin to be processed was stamped with a single 9, approximately 2,3mm in length, on the obverse of an 1898 coin. This took place at exactly 10:30 am on the 2nd of November 1899. #SouthCapeCoins
