Australian Kangaroo 1/2 oz (Varied Year)

Australian Kangaroo 1/2 oz (Varied Year)


The Australian Kangaroo Gold Coins include unlimited mintages for the 1 oz and 1 Kilo coins, and limited mintage caps for the three fractional-ounce coins each year.   The 1/2 oz gold coin typically has the lowest mintage by far in the collection, making it one of the more difficult coins to find and collect.  Each year the Perth mint issues new designs featuring the Kangaroo in unique native settings.  These are some of the most sought after gold coin series in the world.  Coins will be issued in varied years based on our current inventory.

Additional discount of $50.00 per Monster Box applied at checkout for purchases of 1500 oz or more. We will also provide further discounts for purchases above 100 oz of Gold or Platinum, please call 1-800-526-7765 for details. We will beat any competitor's price!


Over the course of the history of the Australian Kangaroo Gold Series, the Perth Mint has offered a total of eight coin weights. The Australian Nugget Series that evolved into the Australian Kangaroo featured 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold. The 1990 transition to the Australian Kangaroo brought with it 1 Kilo and 1/20 oz gold. Over time, 2 oz and 10 oz gold coins were added. As of 2016, the only options left in the series are the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1 Kilo gold coins.

On the obverse of the Australian Kangaroo 1/2 oz Gold Coin, you will find a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In this sixth-generation design, the Queen is depicted at the age of 89 as she wears the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head, earrings, and the Victorian coronation necklace around her neck and shoulders. The design element comes with inscriptions of Elizabeth II, Australia, and 50 Dollars.

The reverse side of 1/2 Australian Kangaroo Gold Coins includes a new design with the image of the red kangaroo. This years exclusive imagery includes a crouching kangaroo that is shown in front of native flora from the Australian continent that include the Waratah and the Kangaroo Paw. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include Australian Kangaroo, year of issue, 1/2 oz 9999 Gold, and a P mint mark from the Perth Mint.
