The history of the 1902 Veldpond
What makes the 1902 Veldpond such a sought after rare South African coin, is the fact that each coin is unique and hand-made, and the coin has a very low mintage of merely 986. As money grew scarcer towards the end of 1901 for the Boers during the Anglo-Boer War, the Boer forces needed to make other plans to buy provisions from black tribes (they did not accept paper money that was brought into circulation by the Government). The 1902 Veldpond mint dies were made by Mr PJ Kloppers who was appointed as the Head of the Mint, and the 1902 Veldpond was minted from some gold bar the Boers had in possession, as well as gold from Pilgrim’s Rest and alluvial gold. “Z.A.R. 1902″ was engraved on the front, and “Een Pond” on the reverse side.
