Comments

Characterised by outstanding craftsmanship, iconic artistry and assured purity, The Perth Mint has revealed Australia’s official bullion coin program for 2018.

Issued annually since 1987, the range of trusted releases offer an outstanding choice of pure gold, silver and platinum coins, each authorised by the Australian Government as official legal tender.

Of the range of five 2018 Australian Kangaroo Gold Bullion Coins, the 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, and 1/10oz sizes showcase a new design featuring two kangaroos bounding across a rural landscape. The 1 kilo gold coin portrays the classic artistry of a bounding ‘red’ kangaroo encircled by symbolic rays of sunshine.

The series is available in 1 kilo 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz sizes. Whilst the 1 kilo and 1oz coins are not limited in mintage the 1/2oz, 1/4oz, and 1/10oz will be limited to mintages of 100,000, 150,000 and 200,000 respectively.

All coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and bear the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the year-date on the obverse.
