Royal Australian Mint….
For the past 11 years, the Royal Australian Mint has held an annual ballot for the iconic Kangaroo at Sunset $25 Gold Proof Coin, with this year marking the coin’s final release.
Available exclusively by ballot, the Kangaroo at Sunset $25 Gold Proof Coin release has been a yearly tradition for the Mint, says Chief Executive Officer Ross MacDiarmid.
“First struck in gold in 2007, the highly collectable Kangaroo at Sunset coin has been one of the Mint’s signature designs,” he said.
“This year marks the final Kangaroo at Sunset release, and with only 1000 coins produced, we expect this ballot to be our most popular yet.
“Both Australian and international customers are eligible for the ballot and those that are not registered with the Mint have until 13 August to do so. The ballot closes on 24 September and will be drawn on 27 September.”
With the conclusion of the Kangaroo at Sunset series, the Mint has big plans for a new ballot next year, with details to be announced soon.
The Kangaroo at Sunset 2019 $25 Gold Proof Coin has a strictly limited mintage of 1000 and is available for $650.00 (AUD) each. There is a limit of one ballot entry per customer.
Those that want to participate in the ballot but are not registered customers with the Royal Australian Mint have until 14 August to sign up online or by phoning 1300 652 020.
