The Australian Kangaroo is always eagerly anticipated by avid coin collectors, mainly thanks to the unique design that changes on an annual basis. The 2015 edition is no exception and features an exquisite image of a Red Kangaroo bounding through the outback under the watchful gaze of the moon. Kangaroos are nocturnal animals. These 1/4oz denominations represent an excellent opportunity to diversify your investment portfolio. Backed by the Australian government the .9999 fineness gold coins have high liquidity and carry a face value of $15 Australian dollars (AUD) although in the current economic climate are worth much more.
Australian Kangaroo Gold Coins are a valuable asset in their own right, but because the Perth Mint limits the number of coins produced they are a collector's item with numismatic appeal. The quarter-ounce versions are also more affordable than higher denominations and allow consumers on a tight budget the chance to invest in these highly rated coins. They are also recognized on a global scale and consumers will not experience any problems finding a buyer when the time comes to sell.
The Gold Nugget/Kangaroo is minted to precise specifications and has a unique two-tone frost effect that helps distinguish it from other gold coins on the bullion market. On the obverse side is the familiar effigy of Queen Elizabeth II created by Ian Rank-Broadley together with inscription of "AUSTRALIA" across the upper rim. The reverse side is the famous Red Kangaroo, one of the Australia's most recognized. The scene depicted for the 2015 edition shows the Kangaroo in its natural Outback habitat with the moon in the upper-right corner to indicate these wild animals are typically active at night. The weight and purity "1/4oz 9999 GOLD" is inscribed across the bottom rim together with the 2015 date. Across the upper rim are the words "AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO." The "P" mintmark to the right of the kangaroo's tail indicates the coins were minted at the Perth refinery.
Gold Kangaroos were first launched in Sydney in 1987, but were known as the Australian Gold Nugget. They were the first gold bullion series to be approved by the Australian government and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. The image of a Kangaroo first made an appearance on the 1989 proof editions as it is a familiar animal associated with the country. Although the coins have retained their original "Australian Nugget" name, they are more commonly referred to as “gold Kangaroos."
The Kangaroo is designed to specific dimensions and are so small and detailed they are practically impossible to counterfeit. The Perth Mint use the latest minting techniques which together with advanced machinery heighten the security of gold bullion products, and the 2015 1/4oz gold coins are no exception.
