The obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. “ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA,” and the denomination are inscribed around the rim.
Two kangaroos hop across a stylized rural landscape on the reverse. The kangaroo is a large marsupial from Australia that has become a national icon. Inscriptions include “AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO,” along with the year of issue, weight, and purity. The mint’s “P” mintmark is also seen along the right rim.
Established in 1899 after local Australian gold deposits were found, the Perth Mint began striking gold and silver sovereigns until Great Britain abandoned the gold standard in 1931. The British retained ownership of the mint until it ceded to the state government of Western Australia in 1970. Now, the Perth Mint produces all of the country’s legal tender bullion coins and has become internationally famous for coins featuring Australian animals like the Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus.
Each Gold Kangaroo comes protected in a plastic capsule as received from the mint.
