Rand Refinery

Established in 1920, the Rand Refinery has a long and storied history. It was originally founded to refine gold from South Africa's prolific Witwatersrand Gold Rush and has grown to become one of the largest and most respected refineries in the world.

The Rand Refinery is one of the world's largest single-site precious metals refining complexes, playing a pivotal role in producing the majority of Africa's gold output and a significant portion of the global gold production.

The refinery is most famous for producing the famous Gold Krugerrand coin, one of the earliest and most successful gold bullion coins. Introduced in 1967, the Krugerrand was designed to promote South African gold and has become a popular choice among investors and collectors worldwide. Rand Refinery is known for maintaining high standards of purity and quality in its gold and other precious metal products. The gold processed and produced here is recognized globally for its high quality.

Rand Refinery's products are accredited by major international market exchanges, and the refinery is a member of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), ensuring its products meet stringent international standards. The refinery is committed to sustainable and ethical practices in its operations, including responsible sourcing of precious metals. The brand hallmark on the bars stored in the LBMA vaults is described as: RAND REFINERY below circular brandmark of a pouring crucible; and RR on the bottom surface.

Rand Refinery Minted Gold Bars

The refinery produces a range of trusted products, including minted gold bars and bullion coins. Its products are highly sought after in both investment and collector markets.

The members only warehouse retailer, Costco, has begun selling Rand Refinery Gold Bars in various weight denominations that include 1 oz, 50 grams and 100 grams of 24k gold. 

The Rand Refinery was established in 1920 to refine the gold ore that was extracted from the mines during the gold rush. This ensures that local miners receive a more equitable share of the profits for gold that had previously been sent to London to be refined.

Krugerrand Gold Coins

The Rand Refinery is a private company. It is however, established by law that is allowed to manufacture and distribute legal tender coins such as the Krugerrand.

The Krugerrand is the original bullion coin for investors and has been popular with investors worldwide for more than 50 years. The design of these coins is one of the most recognized anywhere. The Krugerrand is one of the most affordable bullion coins available today. They are minted annually with the same design features shared between both the gold and silver Krugerrand 1 oz coins.
