The Australian Kangaroo Series is a unique collection among the coins from the Perth Mint. While the Australian Kookaburra and Australian Koala coins offer new designs each year, only the Australian Gold Kangaroo does the same. The Australian Silver and Australian Platinum Kangaroo coins are available with the same design on the reverse face each year, using the popular red kangaroo design.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse face of the 2021 1 oz Australian Platinum Kangaroo coin. The Queen’s bust shown on this side of the coin is the sixth-generation Australian effigy designed in July 2015 for the Royal Mint of England as the fifth-generation British design. It shows the Queen in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown.
A red kangaroo subspecies member is found on the reverse side of 2021 Australian Platinum Kangaroo coins. This design is inspired by the 1936 design of a leaping red kangaroo created for the Australian copper penny. The image features a kangaroo in left-profile relief leaping through the design element with a sunburst image in the background field.
Founded in 1899, the Perth Mint was the third and final branch facility of the Royal Mint of England. Starting in 1902, Australia’s federation movement changed the status of the mints in Australia. By 1965, the Royal Australian Mint had opened as a new sovereign mint for the independent nation and the Perth Mint was eventually transferred to the government of Western Australia.
