Pond - Blank Rimmed
A Brief History
In 1900 the striking of the Kruger Pounds/Ponde were interrupted due to the advance of the British troops on Pretoria. All the available silver and gold, including pond blanks, were removed from the Mint and taken to Middelburg. Once all the minted coins were used up, some of these blanks were used to pay the troops. There are two varieties of these Ponde, namely the rimless/flat blank and the rimmed blank.
