2021 continues the iconic Australian Gold Kangaroo series, which is struck by the world-famous Perth Mint. The Gold Kangaroo Bullion series is struck with a gorgeous Brilliant Uncirculated finish in various sizes, including 1/10th oz., ¼ oz., ½ oz., and the hefty one ounce issue.
Each issue is struck from .9999 fine pure gold, and the coins are legal tender under the Australian Currency Act of 1965. Unlike the Silver Kangaroo Bullion series, the Gold Kangaroo series features annually changing reverse designs to the delight of collectors worldwide.
The reverse of this popular series features a new design every year that highlights Australia’s favorite marsupial, the Kangaroo. Inscriptions of the year, weight, .9999 fine gold purity, and the iconic Perth Mint ‘P’ mintmark are incorporated into the reverse design.
The 2021 one-year-only design was created by Natasha Muhl. The reverse features an adult Red Kangaroo, crouching down in front of native Australian plants. The incredible musculature of the marsupial is showcased in this design.
The obverse of the coin features the timeless portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Jody Clark of The British Royal Mint. Inscriptions include “Elizabeth II,” the denomination, and “Australia” around the rim.
