When the Australian Gold Kangaroo Series debuted in 1986, with 1987 dates, it was known as the Australian Gold Nugget. The coin series featured 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold coins from the outset. Originally, the Perth Mint offered all of the coin weights with an unlimited mintage, indicating that Perth would continue to strike the coins through each given date mark to meet demand. Designs are retired and no longer struck once the next design is ready for release.
In 1990, the transition to the Australian Kangaroo Series resulted in the introduction of mintage caps on the various weights available in the collection. The first mintage cap assigned to the 1/2 oz gold coin in 1990 was much higher than the mintage assigned this year, with a cap of 240,000 gold coins that year. 1990 also saw the introduction of a 1/20 oz gold coin, an option no longer available in the series.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse of 2021 1/2 oz Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins. This bust of the Queen is the sixth-generation design used on Australian coins and was designed in 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England. It debuted on Australian coins starting in 2019 and is now widely used across all denominations and programs.
A red kangaroo is shown crouched between two native plants on the reverse face of 2021 Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins. The design of the red kangaroo includes two well-known native plants in the background, the Waratah and the Kangaroo Paw.
These 2021 1/2 oz Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins are available to you with individual acrylic capsules and will ship in Brilliant Uncirculated condition as received from the Perth Mint.
