The Royal Australian Mints Kangaroo Gold bullion coins revive one of the most popular coin designs from Australian circulation. While other mints come up with their own variations, the Royal Australian Mint elegantly duplicates the original design from the copper penny issued in Australia. This leaping kangaroo design was a popular image in use prior to decimalization in the country.


Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse of the 2017 Kangaroo 1 oz Gold Coin in an ornate design. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief at the center of the design field in the portrait from Ian Rank-Broadley. He created this effigy of the Queen in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England and it was used on Australian coins from 1999 to 2018. Around her figure are inscriptions of Elizabeth II, Australia, and 100 Dollars. The outer edge of the design field has a leaf element framing the design.


A leaping kangaroo is shown on the reverse of 2017 Kangaroo 1 oz Gold Coins from the Royal Australian Mint. The kangaroo is shown leaping right to left across the field with leaves in the background design element and inscriptions of Australia, 2017, and 1 oz .9999 Au.


Copper pennies were first introduced in Australia in 1911, but the famous leaping kangaroo didnt come to the coins until 1932. From 1938 until the end of copper penny coining, the kangaroo was featured on the coin with the commonwealth star of Australia in the design.


These 2017 Kangaroo 1 oz Gold Coins are packaged individually inside of sealed assay cards from the Royal Australian Mint. The card features the mint name and logo on one side, with a QR code on the obverse, the purity, metal content, and weight of the coin featured as well. The CEO of the Royal Australian Mint has signed the cards as well.
