Are you sure it's not 1984? In 1884, South Africa was still using Crown currency (Great Britain) designs and would have had Victoria on one side, and the other side would say 'one penny', not '1 cent'.

I found a small, low-quality image of the 1984 cent inside a sealed mint set. The standing lions design appears on the front of all of the coins in the set, but the image is too small to make out any stars, and the back is not visible. A single coin by itself won't have much value unless it is mint red uncirculated.

One other thing...Krugerrand has a specific meaning. It does not apply to all South African coins, only gold bullion coins. Technically, the Krugerrand is exactly one Troy ounce of gold, but the smaller coins added later, the half, quarter and one-tenth ounce, are also called Krugerrands.
