1 Oz Australian Kangaroo Gold Coin

The Australian Kangaroo gold coin is a gold bullion coin minted by the Perth Mint. These coins are minted in denominations of 1⁄20 oz, 1⁄10 oz, ¼ oz, ½ oz, 1 oz, 2 oz, 10 oz, and 1 kg of 24-carat gold. The coins hold legal tender status in Australia and are one of a select few legal tender bullion gold coins to change their design every year, another being the Chinese Gold Panda. Due to this and their limited annual mintage may, unlike for many other bullion coins, raise their numismatic value over the value of gold used.

Call for Price

Originally (until 1989), the reverse of the Australian one-ounce coins simply featured various pictures of gold nuggets (gold in a raw unrefined form). The first strike of these coins to display different kangaroos was seen on the proof coin edition of 1989. The Kangaroo is a world-recognized symbol of Australia. This design change has lead to the coins being sometimes referred to as gold Australian Kangaroos. The Australian Kangaroo gold coin is not part of the Australian Lunar Gold Bullion coin series and should not be mistaken for such. Though both coins are minted by Perth Mint and have .9999 purity, the Lunar coins use images of different animals from the Chinese calendar instead of the kangaroo.
