The Features of the 1 Ounce 2022 Gold Kangaroo
The coins contain 1 ounce of .9999 pure gold in brilliant uncirculated condition.
The pioneering gold kangaroo coins were minted in 1986 as the Australian gold nugget. The series was later called the Australian gold kangaroo series from 1990. Every year a new design of the gold kangaroo coin is released. For instance, the 2022 gold coin features a new design of the kangaroo as done by Neil Hollis.
The image of Queen Elizabeth II inscribed on the coin is the sixth-generation portrait of the Queen that has appeared on Australian coins. The image was created for the Royal Mint in 2015 by Jody Clark. The design features the Queen in right profile wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
The reverse of the 1 Oz 2022 gold kangaroo coin feature a small kangaroo family designed by Neil Hollis. The inscription is of an adult kangaroo and a young joey. The two kangaroos are depicted hopping across a grassy plain. Three hills are visible behind the kangaroos.
The Perth Mint has made gold kangaroo coins available to investors since 1990. The coins are available in different weights from smaller fractional sizes to 1-kilo gold coins. The 1 Oz gold kangaroo coin and fractional gold coins in the series feature a new kangaroo design. However, the 1-ounce gold coin always bears the image of a red kangaroo.
