The Royal Australian Mint Gold Kangaroo coin revives the copper penny design used by the nation from 1938 to 1964. These coins debuted in 1911, but had only an engraving of the face value and Commonwealth of Australia on the reverse. Starting in 1938, a kangaroo was put on the reverse along with the commonwealth star of Australia.
All 2017 1 oz Royal Mint Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins offered here today features that same design on the reverse face, with modernized additions that include the Tasmanian Blue Gums leaves, branches, and flowers encircling the hopping kangaroos image.
On the obverse of the Royal Australian Mint Gold Kangaroo is the latest effigy of the nations sovereign monarch. Queen Elizabeth II has featured on all Australian coinage since her ascension to the throne in 1952. This portrait comes from 1998 and was created as a fourth-generation depiction by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The Royal Australian Mint Gold Kangaroo is the only gold bullion coin in the world that ships with an Assay card included, which arrives inside of a sealed plastic package provided to the mint by PAMP Suisse.
