The Perth Mint debuted the Gold Australian Kangaroo coins in 1986, with 1987 date marks, as the Gold Australian Nugget program. Debuting four years before the Silver Kookaburra, this collection is the longest running at Perth Mint and helped establish the tradition of using new designs on the reverse side of the coins each year.

1/2 oz Gold Australian Kangaroo Coins have been issued since the launch of the rebranded Gold Kangaroos in 1990. The coins in this weight typically have a set mintage cap in each year, with original figures of 200,000 in 1990. Since that time though, the Perth Mint has used a mintage cap of either 100,000 or 125,000 in a given year for the 1/2 oz Gold Kangaroo coin.

On the reverse of all 1/2 oz Gold Australian Kangaroo Coins is an image of the kangaroo. The animal species is the largest extant marsupial alive today and is notable for its long, powerful tail and muscular hind legs. There is a new design of the kangaroo each year that features either the red kangaroo, western grey kangaroo, or eastern grey kangaroo in most design years.

The obverse of 1/2 oz Gold Australian Kangaroos features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. A total of six designs of the Queen have been used on Australian bullion coinage as of 2019. Most of the 1/2 oz Gold Kangaroos in this listing will feature either Raphael Maklouf’s third-generation design (1984-1997) or Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth-generation design (1998-2018). Only the 2019 Gold Kangaroos have the latest design from Jody Clark.
