The Australian Kangaroo is one of the most popular gold coin minted by Australian mint Perth Mint. First time was introduced in 1986 but under some other form as it has today. At the beginning the name of the coin was Australian Nugget, because the design of the coin represented only the image of the nugget of gold. The design was changed after three years and decided to mint the national symbol of Australia- the Kangaroo. We can see the Kangaroo on the reverse side and he's changing a little bit every year. On the reverse side we can find also the metal finesse, the weight and year of coin issue. This beautiful bullion coin shows on the obverse side the likeness of Queen Elisabeth II with her name and nominal value.
The Australian Mint, well known also as Gold Corporation, is reputable mint for investors. Every year it recycles about 60% of Australia's gold. This mint is the oldest on the continent and has been running continuously since 1999.
