Buy Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins Online from Goldmart

The Australian Gold Kangaroo coin is a sought-after gold bullion item produced by the foremost Royal Mint facility in the South Pacific, Perth Mint. Any serious collector would want to own this prized symbol of the Australian gold industry, which houses 16.3 percent of all the world’s gold shares and is the second largest gold producer in the world. The Australian Gold Kangaroo marries aesthetics, monetary value, and a sense of Australia’s heritage with its premium construction; each Gold Kangaroo is struck from 1 troy oz of investment-grade .9999 pure gold. The coin comes in size increments of 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz, each assigned a corresponding face value by the Australian government.

Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins Design

A prominent feature on the obverse side of this series of coins is the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the current monarch of the Commonwealth of the United Kingdom of which Australia is a part. This fourth definitive coin portrait of the Queen was designed by British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.

However, this coin takes its name from Australia’s own national animal, the kangaroo. Though the engraved lettering of “Australian Kangaroo” is a constant, the animal’s design varies from year to year, thus making each rendition a collector’s item in its own right. The 2019 version features an elegant, detailed image of a kangaroo bent in a jumping position, which is fitting of the craftsmanship the Perth Mint is known for.

History of Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins

The Australian Gold Kangaroo coin was first introduced as the Australian Gold Nugget coin by Gold Corporation (under whose mandate the Perth Mint operates) in 1987. Two years later, in 1989, the mint released a proof edition that featured a kangaroo instead of a gold nugget. This is how the coins acquired their moniker of “gold kangaroos” before officially being changed to Australian Gold Kangaroo in 2008.  

Larger size increments of this coin—from 2 oz, to 10 oz, to 1 kg—were introduced by the Perth Mint with the intention of keeping economies of scale. These size variations are among the largest gold coins that were ever produced. However, the 2 oz, 10 oz, and 1 kg Gold Kangaroos have the fixed red kangaroo design created by Dr. Stuart Devlin on the reverse that does not vary every year. 

Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins at Present

In 2011, the Perth Mint proceeded to break a record set by the Royal Canadian Mint for the world’s largest and most valuable gold coin. The coin featured a red kangaroo on its front side and Queen Elizabeth II’s profile on the reverse, and amassed a value of over 53 million AUD at the time it was minted.

In comparison, the Australian Gold Kangaroos on the market may be smaller, but they’re still great acquisitions for numismatists. Get an Australian Gold Kangaroo for your personal collection and shop at Goldmart now!
