The obverse of 2015 Proof Australian Explorers First Sighting Kangaroo Gold Coins features a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. The design was created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 for the Royal Mint and was first used on Australian coins in 1999. Inscriptions on this field of the coin read ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 2015.


On the reverse side of 2015 Proof Australian Explorers First Sighting Kangaroo 1/10 oz Gold Coins is a depiction of a kangaroo. This kangaroo is shown reaching up into a tree with two joeys in its pouch. The inscriptions on this field of the coin include TEN DOLLARS and 1/10 OZ .9999 AU.


Kangaroos were well-known to Aboriginal tribes, but not to the Europeans who arrived on the Australian continent in the 18th century. The recordings of Western explorers often exaggerated the appearance and features of kangaroos, just as featured in this reverse design based on a colorized carving from Woodthorpe.
