One of the hallmarks of the Gold Australian Kangaroo Series is the use of new designs on the reverse of the coins each year. Prior to the 1990 changeover, the series featured different images of gold nuggets on each of the weights in the series, but used those same designs on each weight with each release. The Gold Kangaroo switched this to use a singular design on all weights, but changing that design each year. This year’s design comes from Neil Hollis.
All of the 2022 2 oz Proof Gold Australian Kangaroo Coins in this listing come with plastic capsules around the coin. The coin and capsule are presented in a timber display case. The case arrives in a themed shipper with the photograph of a kangaroo on the exterior. Each coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and boasts impressive visuals.
The coins in this listing are high-relief specimens, indicating each coin blank was struck under immense pressure in the coining press to create visual depth and raised relief on the design element. The proof finish of the coins results in frosted designs and mirrored fields.
On the obverse of 2022 Proof Gold Kangaroo Coins is a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In this design from Jody Clark, Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief at the age of 89 as she wears the George IV State Diadem.
The reverse face of the 2022 2 oz Proof Gold Australian Kangaroo is a pair of kangaroos. As the two bound across the Outback, one leaps into the foreground as the other flashes across the design field in the background.
