It can be very difficult to remove the Proof Krugerrand from the SAM box. The best way is to cup your hand and "slap" the box into the cupped hand. Only touch the Proof Krugerrand with soft cloth gloves.

In years to come these Proof Krugerrand will be extremely rare. A full set would be very difficult to accomplish.
