The 1 oz Kangaroo gold coin is one of the most popular gold bullion produced by Australia’s Perth Mint. Having once been the Australian Gold Nugget, this coin was changed in 1989 to include a Kangaroo, which made it closer in line with other gold coins produced in Perth. Australian Gold Kangaroo coins always feature a new image of one of the four kangaroo species that inhabit the Australian continent. The coin contains a micro-engraved letter that can only be seen with a microscope adds another layer of security for any investor’s peace of mind. Gold Kangaroo coins are highly sought after for their investment grade gold and collectability.
The 2024 gold kangaroo is among the Perth Mint’s January releases featuring a new Queen Elizabeth II memorial obverse design. The obverse features Her Late Majesty’s effigy as designed by Jody Clark and the dates of her reign (1952-2022) inscribed above. Finally, the coin features a micro-engraved letter for enhanced security. Whether you are a novice or an advanced collector, this Australian Gold Kangaroo is a worthy investment!
