Buy with Confidence
These spectacular 2 oz silver coins feature the iconic Australian kangaroo on a 24-carat gold gilded background representing their natural habitat. These beautiful coins were limited to a mintage of 3000. Get yours before it’s gone!
As an animal that is exclusive to “The Great Down Under,” the Kangaroo serves as an excellent feature for the Perth Mint’s marquee, annual bullion release. The intriguing marsupial is revered for its unique look, incredible leaping ability, and speed- they can leap up to 30 meters in a single bound, at 48 kilometres an hour, and size-growing up to 1.8 meters tall. Known as the Australian Golden nugget until 1989, the series retained the concept of having a dynamic and evolving reverse side design, adding collectability to the golden range of Kangaroos. Since then, the highly popular gold coin has gone on to gain international notoriety adorning the largest bullion coin ever made, at the time in 2014, on tonne Kangaroo with a face value of 1 million Australian Dollars! With 31 years of minting, the Kangaroo is firmly established as a sound and liquid investment!
These unique edition coins feature innovative techniques in numismatics, the Perth mint applied the gilding on the background instead of the bounding kangaroo in focus. The same process was applied on the obverse to the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

ABOUT THE PERTH MINT
The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint’s 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
