Australian Kangaroo coins debuted in late 1986 featuring 1987 date marks. The coins were available from the beginning as the Australian Nugget with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins. Back then, each coin had a different image of a gold nugget that had been discovered in Australia in the past, but each weight had the same design each year. For example, the 1/4 oz coin had the Golden Eagle nugget from 1931 on the coins each year, but the other weights had different nugget images. Now, the coins feature a new kangaroo design on the reverse each year, but with that same design shared across all four weights.
All of these 2022 1/4 oz Australian Gold Kangaroos are available to you individually in protective plastic capsules. These 1/4 oz gold coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with a maximum mintage for 2022 of 150,000 coins. Perth Mint still strikes the coins to meet demand, but will cap mintage at 150,000 coins. Since 2018, demand has fallen from 25,449 that year to 19,412 in 2019 and 10,420 in 2020.
On the obverse of 2022 Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins is an image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. The Queen is shown at the age of 89 in this design that was created in 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England.
The reverse side of 2022 1/4 oz Gold Kangaroo Coins features a depiction of two kangaroos. In this design, an adult kangaroo and its young joey are shown hopping across the grassy plains of Australia.
