Krugerrand Packaging?

Setting- Modern Day/Recent NYC
Genre- Spying, Smuggling and other Illegal activities abound!

For the purposes of my tale, my villian is converting his illegaly gotten cash into Krugerrand coins. Crash course is that Krugerrands are coins minted in South Africa, and 'Full' Krugerrands have exactly 1 Troy ounce of gold, which makes them perfect to trade, buy and sell. And in my tale the hero raids the (former) hideout of the villian and while he doesn't find the villian or the gold he does find whatever the coins were packaged in.

Here's the question, how the heck are Krugerrands packaged in amounts greater than a few coins? I'm talking about a 6-7 figure amount of gold here! I tried Google, Wiki, and got tons of sites on how to buy and sell the suckers, and most dealers sell by the dollar amount rather than by coin or rolls.

I known that Canadian Maple Leaf Coins are packaged in plastic envelopes and there are 25 of these per box, I think the American Eagles are also sealed individual plastic cases, I don't want to use either since the Krugerrand is considered the 'Standard' for Bullion Coins and the longest running name for them.

Are they in rolls, Coin tubes, or are they packaged separate and sold in a box?

Thank you!
