Gold Australian Kangaroo coins for 2016 are available in a total of five weights: 1 kilogram, 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz. The coin program has a number of unique factors that set it apart from other bullion products. First and foremost, its largest coin (1 kilogram) has a different reverse design of the kangaroo than all other weights.
Additionally, the Perth Mint plans to offer different mintage levels for each of the coins based upon their weight. While the 1 kilogram and 1 oz coins have an unlimited mintage to meet the expected demand, the fractional-weight coins all have a mintage cap. The ½ oz coin is the lowest at 100,000, while the ¼ oz coin will be minted to a maximum of 150,000, followed by these 1/10 oz coins at 200,000.
The reverse face of each 2016 1/10 oz Gold Australian Kangaroo Coin features the image of a lone kangaroo as it rests on its haunches. Looking back over its shoulder, the silhouette of another kangaroo is visible in the background.
On the obverse is the common image of Queen Elizabeth II found on all Perth Mint coins. Created in 1988 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this image is surrounded by engravings that include Her Majesty’s name, the face value of the coin, and the nation of issue.
Australia’s Perth Mint is its oldest operating facility. A state-owned entity of Western Australia, the Perth Mint’s products are considered legal tender under the Currency Act of 1965, even though it is not associated with the Royal Australian Mint.
