South Africa Pond and Half Pond  1892 to 1900
South Africa Pond and Half Pond 1892 to 1900

Wow, these are gorgeous gold coins. Ponds and half ponds were minted between 1892 and 1900. Some ponds use a different portrait of Kruger, but this page applies only to coins that look like our photo. Stats:

HALF POND: 19 mm diameter, 0.1176 troy ounces gold
POND: 22 mm diameter, 0.2352 troy ounces gold

In general the earlier dates are worth more and the later dates are worth less. First, compute the Base Value (BV) which accounts for the gold content. At today's level for gold, $1230 US dollars per troy ounce, the Base Value for a 1 pond coin is 0.2352 x 1230 = $289 US dollars. But tomorrow the BV will change. Look up gold value at web sites such as kitco.com.

Once you have the BV, add more value to account for the date and quality of your coin, as follows:

HALF POND
worn: add $0 to the BV
average circulated: add $50
well preserved: add $150
fully uncirculated: add $600
half ponds dated 1893 are very rare, add $10000

POND
worn: add $20 to the BV
average circulated: add $50
well preserved: add $350
fully uncirculated: add $1500

These, of course, are very approximate values. Each of these coins stands on its own merits. If you have a nice specimen, take it to a coin dealer or a knowledgeable collector for an in-person appraisal.
