  • What Happened During The War - 1900 PONDS

    Hi All ,

    1892 - 1897 - Low POP reports ( coins scarce ) , High Mintage Numbers
    1898 - High POP Reports (easily available) , Very Low Mintage Numbers
    1900 - Low POP Reports ( scarce ). Super high Mintage Numbers

    I am quite confused as to this inconsistancy as the 98 ponds are very easy to find , but what happened to the 700000+ 1900 ponds.

    I have heard that the Kruger republic withdrew a large sum of money from the mint prior to the invasion.

    Can anyone Shed some light on the subject.

    Were they melted down, or part of the " Kruger Millions " ,

    Btw , my assumption Is the money from the mint was exchanged for flour and the zar republic was credited with the funds taken from the mint , but the main question is ,,,,, what happened to 700k of 1900 ponds.

    Warm Regards
