The Perth Mint is pleased to present the Australian Kangaroo – 25th Anniversary 2014 2oz Gold Proof High Relief Coin, celebrating 25 years of the classic red kangaroo design.
The iconic artistry, featured on this 25th anniversary commemorative, was originally introduced as part of the Australian Nugget coin program as the new theme for the 1989 Proof Issue.
Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Gold
Each coin is meticulously struck from 2oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality.
Stunning Original Red Kangaroo High Relief Reverse Design
The coin’s reverse portrays a bounding red kangaroo surrounded by stylised rays of sunlight and bordered by the inscriptions AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO 2oz 9999 GOLD, the year-dates 1989 – 2014, and a special Perth Mint mintmark ‘P25’ signifying 25 years since the design was first introduced.
The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and the monetary denomination are shown on the coin’s obverse.
Extremely Limited Mintage
The Perth Mint will release no more than 250 of the Australian Kangaroo 25th Anniversary 2014 2oz Gold Proof High Relief Coin.
Elegant Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate
