In 1986, the Perth Mint introduced a coin series then known as the Gold Nugget. These gold bullion coins would feature a different reverse design for each weight, but use that same image each year on those varying weights. In 1990, Perth altered the series focus to the kangaroo to coincide with the release of the new Silver Kookaburra.
In 2016, Perth Mint introduced the first annual-issue BU Silver Kangaroo, a beautiful new coin with first-ever .9999 fine silver content. Just two years later, the Platinum Kangaroo was born. Like the Silver Kangaroo, it uses Stuart Devlin’s iconic image of the kangaroo hopping along with stylized sun rays in the background. Also, like the Silver Kangaroo, the Platinum Kangaroo features this same design each year.
The obverse of 2022 1 oz Platinum Kangaroos comes with an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The sixth-generation portrait of the Queen to grace Australian coins during her reign is the first portrait of the monarch on an Australian coin since 1966 to include her shoulders within the portrait field.
On the reverse side of 2022 Platinum Australian Kangaroos is Stuart Devlin’s depiction of the kangaroo. Specifically, this design captures a specimen from the red kangaroo subspecies as it hops from right to left across the design field with stylized sun rays in the background.
These 2022 1 oz Platinum Australian Kangaroos are available to you individually or in bulk. Individual platinum coins come in acrylic capsules, with protective tubes for multiples of 20 coins or boxes for multiples of 100. The boxes hold 5 individual 20-coin tubes. All coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. An unlimited mintage at Perth means these coins will be struck to meet demand into 2022 until the point the mint begins to issue the 2023-dated coins.
