Australian Kangaroo Gold Coin
Featuring the Australian Red Kangaroo, the Perth Mint has produced the Kangaroo coin since 1986. A new design each year portrays a different picture of kangaroos. The obverse design is of Queen Elizabeth II. The Kangaroo replaced the Australian Nugget coin.
The Perth Mint has created a gorgeous two-tone finish with frosted backgrounds and highly reflective, proof-like raised features that give this coin its distinctive, unique look.
The Australian Perth Mint was established in 1899 and also makes the silver Kookaburra coin.
