Story

Classic kangaroo

Skipping over scorched red dirt and spinifex, or seeking shade in sweet-scented eucalypt forest, the kangaroo is as unique as the ancient landscapes it symbolises. In tribute to our most iconic wildlife emblem, we’re honoured to present classic kangaroo artistry on this magnificent annual release from Australia’s signature gold bullion coin series.
 

2022 Australian kangaroo design

The Australian Kangaroo 2022 1 kilo gold bullion coin portrays a bounding red kangaroo (Osphranter rufus) surrounded by stylised rays of sunlight. Including the inscription ‘KANGAROO’, the reverse incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark as well as the coin’s weight, purity and 2022 year-date.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, Kangaroo gold bullion coins have been trusted for their weight and purity by investors worldwide for more than three decades

Authentication feature

For additional peace of mind, the coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.
 

Presentation and mintage

Presented in a protective acrylic capsule, the coin is subject to an unlimited mintage.  Production will close at the end of 2022, after which The Perth Mint will declare the coin's official mintage.
