¼ ounce kangaroo gold coin 2022

The Kangaroo series is the most successful series of gold coins launched by the Perth Mint, and the series is available in gold, silver and platinum. The coin was first launched in a 1 Ounce size in 1986 with an image of a gold nugget, but this was updated two years later to the now iconic Kangaroo image.

Skipping over scorched red dirt and spinifex, or seeking shade in sweet-scented eucalypt forest, the kangaroo is as unique as the ancient landscapes it symbolises. In tribute to this iconic wildlife, the Perth Mint decided to feature it on its coin series and to change the design annually.

The Australian Kangaroo 2022 1/4oz gold coin sold on GoldFlorin, portrays a kangaroo and its joey bounding across a flat, grassy plain with hillocks on the horizon. On top of being a local national symbol, the kangaroo itself also has a special meaning: it is native only to Australia and it is a symbol of progress due to the fact that it cannot move backwards.

Inscribed above the drawing are the words 'AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO', and below, the coin's year, weight and gold purity '2022 1/4oz 9999 GOLD'. A ‘P’ mint mark to the left signifies that the coins are minted by the Perth Mint. Each ¼ ounce gold coin has a purity of 9999, making these 24 karat gold coins investment grade.

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. Clark had only been working as an engraver at The Royal Mint for two years prior to an opportunity to produce the famed effigy. Entering a competition to curate the prominent design on a whim, Clark became the first engraver from The Royal Mint selected to create such portraiture in over 100 years. Here, Her Majesty is wearing her diadem crown and the royal jewels and we can find her name, AUSTRALIA and the legal tender of the coin 25 dollars.

The fact that each year, the Perth Mint features new kangaroo imagery on its Gold Kangaroo coins, makes the series extremely popular with both gold investors and collectors alike..

Presented in a protective acrylic capsule, the coin is subject to a limited mintage of 150,000. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of 2022, whichever comes first, after which The Perth Mint will declare the coin's official mintage. So do not wait and purchase it now on our GoldFlorin website!
