The red kangaroo features in this beloved gold bullion coin series, and is the largest marsupial in the species.

Perth Mint is not the official sovereign mint of Australia, a title held by the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra. Rather, it is the oldest operating facility in the country and formerly part of the Royal Mint system during British colonial control. Since 1970, the mint has been owned by the state government of Western Australia.
