The Red Kangaroo is the world’s largest marsupial, with some adult males standing nearly six feet in height. These majestic creatures reside in the arid desert of Australia and subsist mainly on grass and herbage. They are specifically suited for dry regions and can survive with little water, as the moisture found in their food is sufficient for their survival. Female Red Kangaroos give birth to one baby at a time, and upon delivery, their joey will reside in the mother’s special pouch for 8-10 months until emerging to live independently.
The obverse of 1999 Australian Gold Kangaroos features Elizabeth II. In this design by Ian Rank-Broadley, Her Majesty is seen in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This portrait was introduced in 1998 and has since been used repeatedly on coins throughout the Commonwealth nations. Inscriptions on the obverse read Elizabeth II, Australia, 1000 Dollars.
On the reverse field of 1999 10 Gold Kangaroos, there is a depiction of a Red Kangaroo. This iconic marsupial appears facing the left side as they bound through the air. This is the standard Kangaroo design used on all of the 10 oz Gold Kangaroos produced between 1991 and 2009. Inscriptions read The Australian Nugget, 10 oz, .9999 Gold, 1999, Red Kangaroo.
Each 1999 10 oz Australian Kangaroo will arrive inside a protective plastic capsule. These remarkable specimens were produced directly at the Perth Mint and are considered legal tender by the government of Australia.
