Initially, mintage was listed as unlimited for the new strike, but this never rarely proves to be the case and Gold Mini Roos typically sell out just weeks after they are released, so to avoid disappoint pre-order you Mini Roos at your earliest convenience by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Security of 2012 0.5g "Mini Roo" coinsThe Perth Mint houses these striking gold bullion coins in a protective acrylic capsule and presents them in a coloured wallet-sized presentation card. Unlike all other sizes of Gold Kangaroos, there are no frosted or mirror-like surfaces on "Mini Roos".
Nevertheless, the production of these miniature coins, indeed in such detailed relief, precision, and fine finish is an achievement, even for the high-tech minting devices of the Perth Mint. Attempts to counterfeit coins of this size would be both unrealistic and financially unprofitable.
