The Perth Mint, founded in 1899, has now become one of the most respected Mints in the world with globally acclaimed products. They not only have amazing skills from their long-running experience but are now using modern techniques allowing them to produce outstanding coins.
The Kangaroo 1 oz 2022, their latest release, is certainly a perfect example of the expertise shown by the Perth Mint. A micro-engraved letter which can be seen only with a microscope or magnifying glass has been added and this additional security is certainly reassuring for all the investors. The Australian coin contains .9999 fine gold and weighs 1 troy ounce. Its weight and purity are guaranteed by the Australian government.
The beloved Kangaroo, an emblem of Australia, is portrayed on the reverse of the coin but for this 2022 release, it is accompanied by its joey (offspring). The two kangaroos are featured hopping across the grassy Australian plain with hills visible on the horizon.
Originally, the design depicted an Australian gold nugget but in 1989, it was changed to feature the widely recognized symbol of Australia. The Gold Kangaroo series is among a few major pure Gold Bullion coins that change their reverse design annually.
The kangaroo is an iconic representation of the fascinating wildlife inhabiting Australia and in the 2022 release, the design also represents the importance of the family and the transmission between generations. The reverse incorporates the “P” trademark of the Perth Mint’s together with the coin’s weight, purity, and 2022 year date.
The obverse of the coin features Queen Elizabeth II, who this year celebrates her Platinum Jubilee (70 years since her accession to the throne). The design has been created by Jody Clark and chosen in 2015 through a competition commissioned by the United Kingdom’s Royal Mint Advisory Committee. It, therefore, features the Queen aged 89. In this now-familiar design, the Queen is wearing her diadem crown and the royal jewels and the drawing is so detailed that you can even see the lines in Her Majesty’s face.
Above the effigy of the Queen stands the writing ELIZABETH II and AUSTRALIA and below her image is 100 Dollars.
The 2022 1 oz Australian Gold Kangaroo Coin is of course a great addition to anyone’s collection or portfolio. Presented in a protective acrylic capsule, it is subject to an unlimited mintage but production will close at the end of 2022. Purchase this brilliant Kangaroo Coin from Coininvest for your portfolio today and you will not be disappointed!
