The leading gold bullion coin series from Perth Mint is the Australian Gold Kangaroo. Introduced in 1986 as the Australian Gold Nugget, the coin series was rebranded in 1990 to feature the native marsupial from the Australian continent. Over the course of time, the 1 oz gold coin has been the most popular and stable coin in the series.
Available in the series since the 1986 debut of the Gold Nugget, the 1 oz Australian Gold Kangaroo is the anchor of this beloved series. The coins are offered to investors with 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure gold and a face value of $100 (AUD). Generally speaking, Perth Mint offers the 1 oz Gold Kangaroo with an unlimited mintage each year and bulk packaging up to 100 coins in a box.
The kangaroo is the largest living marsupial on the Australian continent and is one of the most recognizable icons of the nation. While various kangaroo species have featured on the coins in this collection, the Western grey is the most common to feature in the designs. The Western Grey Kangaroo is primarily herbivorous and feeds on a variety of vegetation, including grasses, shrubs, leaves, and even fruits. Their diet is well-suited to the habitats they inhabit. They are known for their ability to subsist on dry and tough plant material, which can be important during periods of limited water availability.
