Copper is used for the other part, making the coin many times stronger for outside influences and giving it a red color. The net weight of the Krugerrand is in line with other popular gold coins, which are struck in 99.99% pure gold. This means that the gross weight of the coins is heavier. On balance, the coin contains exactly the same amount of grams of pure gold. The value is therefore the same.

The reverse of the coin features a typical South African springbok, the national animal of South Africa. Above the springbok is the name of the coin “Krugerrand” with the year of manufacture, consisting of two numbers printed on the left and right of the springbok motif, for example "20" and "22" for "2022".
