The 2017 1oz Gold Kangaroo is the first investment coin in the world that can be identified using PAMP's ground-breaking VeriScan® bullion identification system.

The Royal Australian Mint (RAM) supplies all the country's circulating coinage from its base in the Australian capital, Canberra. When the Mint opened in 1965, its first main project was to produce coins for the introduction of the decimal currency system in February 1966. Since opening, the Royal Australian Mint has produced over 15 billion circulating coins and is now able to mint up to two million coins per day. Demand for Proof and Uncirculated versions of these first decimal coins soared, prompting the Mint to expand its range of investment coins.
The 2017 1oz RAM Gold Kangaroo is an excellent example of the type of high-quality products that the RAM is known for; the Mint was the first in the world to gain accreditation to International Quality Standards ISO 9001. Each coin contains one troy ounce of fine .9999 gold and its face value of $100 (AUS) is guaranteed by the Government of Australia.
The 1oz 2017 RAM Kangaroo gold coin features the iconic red kangaroo design that once graced the reverse of the country's copper pennies. The leaping kangaroo is surrounded by leaves and plants, including the flowers of the Tasmanian Blue Gum tree. The Commonwealth Star can be seen on the lower left of the coin and the year of issue, 2017, on the lower right. The obverse of the 2017 1oz Kangaroo is embellished with Sir Ian Rank-Broadley's distinctive portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
CoinInvest is delighted to offer its customers the 2017 1oz Kangaroo gold coin from the Royal Australian Mint. It's the first in the world to feature PAMP Suisse's innovative VeriScan® technology – a system that uses microscopic details within the metal's surface topography to identify registered coins.
