The 2002 Australian Kangaroo from the acclaimed Perth Mint. Publishing their own gold coins since 1986, they have become one of the leading bullion manufactures in the world. Known for their beautifully designed, and high quality coins.
Australia decided to produce their own gold coin after the import ban of the South African Krugerrand. Initially the coins were struck with images from iconic gold nuggets found on the continent. This changed to the more recognisable Kangaroo in 1989. The change over to using an image of an animal made the coin more marketable, and appealing to investors and collectors alike. They are some of the few legal tender coins that change their designs annually.
This 1 oz coin features a two kangaroos sitting on an imprint of the Australian Continent. They are both facing opposite directions. Inscribed around the edge of the coin is ‘The Australian Nugget’ Along with the year, and denomination, and purity.
The obverse features a right facing effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
