Magnificent Two Kangaroos Design by Aleysha Howarth
On the obverse is Jody Clark's right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which has featured on Australian coinage in recent years. The Royal Diamond Diadem sits on the head of the monarch, who also wears earrings and a necklace. The likeness is encircled by a rim frame in which the monarch's name, "ELIZABETH II," joins the name of the issuing country, "AUSTRALIA," and the coin's face value, "50 DOLLARS."
Two kangaroos stand between grass trees in Aleysha Howarth's reverse design. One of the animals is show close up in the foreground, which gives the holder the opportunity to examine the storied animal in close detail. Arching over the image on the rim frame is the name of the coin, "AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO." At the bottom of the frame are inscriptions that note the date, "2020," weight, "1/2 OZ," and purity, "9999 GOLD," of the coin.
