2020 1/2 oz Gold Australia Kangaroo
The Perth Mint’s highly-prized Gold Kangaroo .9999 fine gold bullion coin series has been a primary choice of investors from the date of its first release in 1989. Prior to this, Perth produced the original Gold Nugget gold bullion series (1986-89). That early series set the scene for the stellar 1989 introduction of the gold Kangaroo. The series features a different kangaroo design each year, which is also a tremendous draw for gold bullion coin collectors. This 2020 1/2 oz Gold Australia Kangaroo release is a stunning example, as it continues the fine legacy of quality and beauty!
Lovely and Graceful
The obverse features the 6th generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II to be displayed on Australian coins. The portrait is based on that designed by Jody Clark of the Royal Mint for 2016. It is distinctively different, however, in that it displays the Queen’s shoulders and full neckline. This is a very lovely and graceful pose. The band at the rim includes the inscriptions, “ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA” at the top, and “50 DOLLARS” face value at the bottom.
In The Outback
The brand new 2020 reverse design captures a finely detailed scene of a left-facing adult kangaroo standing upright on a grassy plain. Nearby, in the background a joey is shown in a similar pose. The scene is framed by two Australian grass trees, pictured growing up out of the rim-band, providing a nice final touch. Inscriptions encircling the rim include “AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO” at the top, and “2020 1/2 oz 9999 GOLD” at the bottom. The Perth Mint P mintmark is displayed at the left.
This fresh, new 2020 1/2 oz Gold Australia Kangaroo release is a beautiful addition to the series, and would grace any collector’s display, as well as increasing the investor’s gold holdings.
