The Perth Mint of Australia has been continuously producing Australia’s coins since it was created as an extension of the Royal Mint of England in the late 19th century. Through the years there have been a number of notable coins produced by Perth, but none with more worldwide renown than the Australian Gold Kangaroo series. Originally known as the Gold Nugget series when it made its first appearance in 1986, the coins were shortly thereafter changed to boast a design that is much more indicative of a coin produced by Australia’s national mint.
The 1/4 oz. Australian Gold Kangaroo is available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from Silver.com and is ready to ship. The coin has one of the industry’s highest levels of purity as it is composed of .9999 (99.99%) pure gold. For 2014’s release, the coin’s reverse beautifully depicts a kangaroo in the foreground of an Australian wilderness scene. Behind the standing kangaroo is the Australian brush, complete with cattle fencing, mountain ranges, and a sparse population of trees. Incredibly lifelike, the image depicted on the 2014 Gold Kangaroo’s reverse is unlike anything you will find on any other coin.
Designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, the reverse side of the Gold Kangaroo is marked by the profile image of Queen Elizabeth II. Surrounding the image of the Queen are inscriptions reading ‘Australia’ ‘Elizabeth II’ and ’25 Dollars.’
The Perth Mint of Australia is known for its production of beautifully ornate coins, but few draw the attention of worldwide investors and collectors like the Gold Kangaroo. Perhaps most attractive of all is the fact that the image of the kangaroo changes from year to year. As a result of its inordinately high purity and limited annual mintage, the Gold Kangaroo is an attractive addition to any investment or collection.
