The Gold Kangaroo is an incredibly popular series from the Perth Mint. These beautiful gold coins were originally issued as the Gold Nugget Series and represented some of the iconic, historic golden nuggets discovered throughout Australia from the first days of gold exploration and discovery on the continent.
In 1990, the Perth Mint transitioned the series to be the Gold Kangaroo. Instead of a new image of a gold nugget on the reverse each year, the series began to feature a new depiction of the kangaroo species on the reverse each year. The transition occurred alongside the debut of the Silver Kookaburra, a complementary silver bullion series with its own changing reverse designs capturing yet another native Australian species.
On the obverse side of 2021 1 oz Gold Australian Kangaroos is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait of the Queen was developed in July 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England. It debuted on Australian coins in 2019 and shows the Queen at the age of 89. In the design, the Queen has the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head, earrings, and the Victorian coronation necklace.
The reverse face of the 2021 Gold Australian Kangaroo includes an image of a red kangaroo crouched down surveying the Outback. The red kangaroo is one of four recognized subspecies of the marsupials with eastern grey, western grey, and antilopine kangaroos representing the other three subspecies. Native flora are found in the background of this design and include the Waratah and Kangaroo Paw plants.
These 2021 1 oz Gold Australian Kangaroo Coins are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Individual coins come with a protective acrylic capsule, while multiples of 100 are housed inside of a box.
