Kangaroos were first spotted by outsiders to the Australian continent when the British arrived on the southern coast. Kangaroos, often viewed as one type of animal, actually include for major subspecies on the continent, though it is the red kangaroo subspecies that most are familiar with. The creature has become so beloved it is an unofficial emblem of the nation and appears on various government crests and private enterprise logos.
On the reverse side of the 2017 1/2 Gram Australian Gold Mini Roo is the image of a red kangaroo subspecies as it leaps across the open plain of the design field. The creatures often feature on Australian coinage, such as the all-new Australian Silver Kangaroo bullion coin and the annual-release Australian Gold Kangaroo.
The obverse of the 2017 1/2 Gram Australian Gold Mini Roo coin includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The image of Her Majesty in use on Australian coinage today is Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth-generation depiction created in 1998 for use on commonwealth and British coinage.
