Only in 1980, they began to manufacture coins of 1/2, 1/4 and 1/10oz. The name "Krugerrand" was given after Paul Kruger, the President of the South African Republic in the 80s and 90s of the 19th century, and the Witwatersrand mountain range near Johannesburg, built mainly from quartzite rich in gold - from this region comes almost 40% of all gold that has been mined so far worldwide.

The first gold coins were produced in America in 1795. These were ten dollar Gold Eagles. Today, this noble tradition is continued in the form of the American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin manufacture. This official and most popular gold bullion coin in the United States has been minted since 1986 at the US Mint. The coin is made of 22-carat gold (916 purity). In the production process, to the alloy of pure gold they add an admixture of silver (approx. 3%) and copper (approx. 5.3%), which greatly enhances the hardness of the coin.
The design of the American Eagle was approved by the US Congress, which also remains the guarantor of its gold purity and appropriate weight. The coin was designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Miley Busiek.
