The longest running coin program from Australia’s Perth Mint is the Australian Gold Kangaroo. Though it began life as the Australian Gold Nugget in 1986, since 1990 it has been known as the Australian Gold Kangaroo, using the more familiar marsupial as a representative of the nation.

Australian Gold Kangaroo coins are much like the Kookaburra and Koala releases that are immensely popular in silver and gold. There is a new design used on the reverse side of the coin each year, but the Australian Gold Kangaroo has a slightly different history.
On the reverse of the ¼ Australian Gold Kangaroo Coin you’ll find the image of a kangaroo, which can vary from one year to the next. Kangaroos have one of the most unique methods of movement in the animal kingdom, relying on their two powerful hind legs and a muscular tail for balance.
The obverse of all 2017 Australian Gold Kangaroo coins includes the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Captured in right-profile relief, this image of Her Majesty was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley as the fourth-generation image of the Queen.
Perth Mint is a state-owned entity of Western Australia. Opened in 1899, it is not affiliated with the Royal Australian Mint, but does enjoy legal tender status for its coins under the Currency At of 1965.
