The Gold Australian Kangaroo is one of the only Gold bullion coins in the world to change its design each year. Add this beautiful 2014 Gold Kangaroo coin to your cart today!

The Australian 1 oz Gold Kangaroo bullion coin was introduced in 1986 by Gold Corp., an entity owned entirely by the Government of Western Australia. Available in sizes ranging from 1/20 oz to 1 kilo, and containing .9999 fine Gold, this bullion coin series is lauded by investors and collectors alike for its purity and beautiful designs.

From 1986 to 1989, the reverse of the coin featured a Gold nugget, but in 1989, the design was changed to a kangaroo to better symbolize Australia. The Australian Gold Kangaroo is one of the few bullion coins in the world that changes its design every year and although the kangaroo remains on the coin each time, the design varies bringing the coin to life.

The Perth Mint was established June 20, 1899, two years before the federation of Australia in 1901. The mint was initially established to refine the large amounts of Gold coming in from deposits in Coolgardie, Kalgoorlie and Murchison areas of Western Australia and to produce Gold sovereigns and half sovereigns to be used throughout Britain. Although Australia became its own nation in 1901, the Perth Mint remained under the jurisdiction of Great Britain 1970. Following a 1987 State Act of Parliament, Gold Corporation, a company wholly owned by the Government of Western Australia, was established and mandated to operate the Perth Mint to market their Gold, Silver and Platinum Australian coins overseas.

The Perth Mint is also known for its outstanding quality and industry-leading creations. In 1957, the mint produced a 13 oz proof “plate” of .999999 fine Gold, the highest purity ever achieved. In 2011, they created the world’s largest, heaviest and most valuable Gold coin, containing .9999 fine Gold and weighing 2,231 pounds, that was worth $53.5 million (AUD) at the time of minting.

Great coin -- worth buying

I bought this coin because I wanted a 1 ounce coin that was a little different than the common gold coins. I really think the design is very attractive and enjoy the purchase. Having the anniversary design is very cool.

Best of the Best

For my money, the australian gold kangaroo is my favored bullion gold coin. I like the changing design year-to-year and the fact they encapsulate each in plastic at the mint for safe-keeping. I like the fact the premiums over spot gold run lower than for gold eagles. This 25th anniversary coin adds a potential numismatic element with its limited mintage. I own 2 and wish I'd bought more.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

beautiful.and IRA approved. my take as a simple person is that IRA approved means it is high gold content, so that's how i set the standard. I stand corrected. It is the one of the most beautiful kangaroo picture in full flight , some kangaroos are not pretty. i cannot say of anything i don't like about this product . It was well packed and arrived as promised.

I bought this product mainly because I own various pieces of gold but not a kangaroo. Another reason is the lower mintage of the item. I will have to say that I'm please with I purchased. I also love how the coin comes in a protective case. I'm looking forward to buying another before the sell out completely.

1 tonne of replica Perth fineness

Shipping was quick but man I almost should have went to pay for check instead of credit but its all good, by credit it arrives much quicker and saves time in post office line and gas. The coin is really nice, has that nice yellow gold color. Once I recieved the coin I removed from that cheap capsule because I did not like the coin moving and making all these rattle sounds inside and so instead I put in the higher quality Air-Tite Holder w/ Black Gasket - 32mm, I'm happy that I did. This is my first 24K gold coin, and I am very happy I have a 25th anniversery Perth mint original artwork gold coin, but from now finally owning and seeing 24K I think I am just going to stick to just plain, durable, and reliable 22K Gold Eagles.
