The Perth Mint first issued the Kangaroo Gold in 1990. The reverse features a kangaroo motif which changes yearly and the obverse features Queen Elizabeth II. The annually changing kangaroo motif has greatly added to the coins popularity among collectors. Additionally the Kangaroo Gold coin is sold with a lower premium on the spot making it very attractive for investors. On top of that, being one of Europe’s leading precious metal distributors, we at coininvest.com have a direct relationship with the Perth Mint allowing us to buy in larger quantities and enabling us to pass down savings onto clients for even more competitive prices.
Kangaroo’s can only travel forwards, reaching speeds of over 35 miles per hour and covering 25 feet in a single leap! The reason the kangaroo replaced the gold nugget on the coin in 1989 was because the Kangaroo is more symbolic of Australia and representative of the nations forward progression.
