Gold Kangaroo Coin Design

The reverse of each small gold coin portrays a kangaroo looking over its shoulder with a eucalyptus tree and grass trees in the background. The design incorporates the inscription ‘KANGAROO’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2023 year-date and the coin’s weight and purity. The reverse of the 1 kilo coin portrays the classic artistry of a bounding red kangaroo surrounded by rays of sunlight.

Each small gold coin design also incorporates the inscription ‘KANGAROO’, while the 1 kilo coin features the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO’. All coins include The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2023 year-date, and the weight and purity.

The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, supplemented with the dates of her reign, and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of each coin.

The reverse of the 1oz and 1 kilo coins includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the coin’s design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
