2018 Silver Krugerrand MS70 FDI

The 2018 South African Silver Krugerrand is the first-ever legal tender silver bullion none commemorative strike. Being the first coin in a new series makes it a key date, a coin that all future collectors of the series will want to own.
 
The legendary Krugerrand Introduced in 1967 was the first modern gold bullion coin in the world. Its instant acceptance and success paved the way for the American Gold and Silver Eagle, Canadian Maple Leaf and Chinese Panda. Now fifty one years after the release of the first- ever gold Krugerrand is the first - ever silver bullion Krugerrand.
 
This one-ounce coin minted in .999 fine silver features the distinctive Krugerrand design, making it an irresistible addition to any collection. The obverse of the Krugerrand Silver coin matches the Gold Krugerrand, featuring the South African Republic’s first president, Paul Kruger. The reverse of the Silver Krugerrand depicts South Africa’s symbol, the Springbok Gazelle.

Condition Mint State 70 (MS70)
 
Coins are graded on a 70-point scale with “70” being absolute perfection. In 1948, Dr. William Sheldon, a renowned numismatist, developed the Sheldon Scale, assigning number grades from "1" through "70" to coins. The basis of Sheldon’s theory was that a "70" would be worth 70 times as much as a "1."
 
The numerical grades MS60 through MS70, are used to denote business strike coins that never have been in circulation. A Mint State coin can range from one that is poorly struck with many marks and hairlines (MS60), to a flawless, fully struck, lustrous example with superb eye appeal (MS70).
 
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) Certified label

 
A coin collector buys both the coin and the slab. In addition to buying the certification service’s reputation and a numeric grade, the coin buyer purchases the holder as a physical object. NGC special labels enhance and differentiate your coin from others in the same grade, serving a function beyond recording the coin’s authenticity and condition. The presentation and collectible value of these coins is enhanced by being identified as coveted First Day of Issue (FDI) coins and as Signature Series coins, coins that have the original signature of a noteworthy person connected with the coin.
