The 2014 Model 99.99% pure gold bullion Kangaroo coin pictures a member of the Bigfoot family, rampant on a field of hollyhocks, facing eastward and gazing longingly towards Tasmania.
Each of these finely-detailed coins is issued in individual round plastic capsules from the Perth Mint, and since 1987, each year features a different portrait of Australia’s most famous animal.
As are most modern Australian gold coins, Kangaroo Gold Coins are .9999 fine (24 karat) and come individually capsulated in protective plastic covers, which do an excellent job of keeping the coins from being scratched or damaged.
This coin features a fully grown kangaroo in the foreground of its design. The background features an artistically wrought scene comprised of wild grasses, fencings, trees, and even the hilly terrain over which this kangaroo has come hopping. The coin is stamped with its .9999 gold purity and its one troy ounce weight. The obverse side of the coin depicts a profile view of Queen Elizabeth II along with marks denoting ‘Australia,’ the coin’s face value, and the queen’s title. Altogether, this is a stunning offering from a mint that is forever creating increasingly breathtaking designs.
