This 0.1 oz Kangaroo gold bullion coin is minted for 2020 by Australia's famous Perth Mint. Each coin weighs 1 troy ounce and has a gold fineness of 0.9999.
Since its inception, the Perth Mint’s Australian Kangaroo bullion coin series has become one of the world’s most anticipated investment bullion coin series with designs that change each year.
The front face of the 2020 0.1 oz Gold Kangaroo coin features an adult kangaroo amid grass trees with a joey in the background. Inscribed at the top are the words 'AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO', and below, the coin's year, weight and gold purity '2020 0.1 oz 9999 GOLD'.
The reverse face of the Gold Kangaroo bullion coin contains a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, Austria’s official head of state, and the coin's face value of '15 dollars'. The 0.1 oz Gold Kangaroo bullion coin is produced in a limited mintage of 200,000 pieces.
In addition to the 1 oz gold bullion coin, the Australian gold Kangaroo is also minted in weights of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and the very large 1 kilo Gold Kangaroo.
The Perth Mint is 120 years old having originally been founded in 1899 in the wake of the legendary gold rush in Western Australia fueled by gold discoveries in the surrounding areas of Coolgardie and Kalgoorie.
While the Australian Kangaroo gold bullion coin series was first issued in 1990, it is officially called the 'Australian Nugget Kangaroo Gold Bullion Series', because from 1987 to 1989 a similar coin with imagery of famous Australian gold nuggets was issued by the Perth Mint.
