A consistent favorite with collectors, the Perth Mint’s annual release of gold Kangaroo coins is a tribute to a venerable tradition of celebrating Australia’s most iconic marsupial on currency. These coins have attracted a loyal following thanks to the Mint’s signature attention to detail and quality, with each piece struck twice in 99.99% pure gold, using polished and hand-finished dies to produce Brilliant Uncirculated luster and frosted details. To provide an affordable option for new collectors, the half-gram “Mini Roo” coin was added to the series starting in 2010, and remains a favorite entry-level bullion coin to this day. Provident Metals proudly presents the 2015 Australian Mini Roo 1/2 Gram Gold Coin for online purchase.
Your 2015 Australian Mini Roo Gold Coin arrives in a colorful assay card that verifies its weight, purity, serial number, and other key details, with the further protection of a sturdy acrylic seal. Provident Metals fully insures your shipment against any possibility of mishap in transit.
The classic Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the late monarch Queen Elizabeth II — also known as the “Fourth Portrait” — appears on the coin’s obverse side, wearing the signature “Girls of Great Britain and Ireland” diamond tiara and confirming the coin’s status as Australian legal tender. She is accompanied by the inscriptions “QUEEN ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA 2015,” and “2 DOLLARS.”
A kangaroo is shown bounding across the countryside of the Australian Outback on the coin’s reverse field. This is accompanied by the Pert Mint’s “P” mint mark and the lettering “0.5 GRAM 9999 GOLD.”
The kangaroo is the most famous symbolic animal of Australia and has been featured on countless coins, medallions, and tokens going back to the 1850s. The Perth Mint conceived of its annual kangaroo coin series as a commemoration of that legacy, launching it in 1989 and issued in 99.99% pure gold in a range of weights designed to appeal to different types of buyers. The half-gram “Mini Roo” joined the series in 2010 in a successful bid to create a coin that would be attractive to buyers trying to enter the market at a reasonable price.
