LONDON. Shares of £1. blue, black. No 1052. Folds. Fine vignettes of the Dutch-speaking Boers' Great Trek away from British rule in Cape Colony to form their own republics in the interior. Paulus Kruger (Oom Paul) (1825-1904) was one of their leaders, and became President of the SouthAfrican Republic. He was defeated by Britain in the Second Boer War (1899-1902), and died soon after. The famous Kruger National Park is named after him, as well as the gold coin Krugerrand. Gold was first found in the Witwatersrand/Transvaal in 1886, provoking an important mining boom. One of the finest and most interesting of South African gold-mining pieces, and rare indeed. Founded 1887, dissolved 1906.
