For over 110 years, the Perth Mint has produced some of the world’s finest gold and silver bullion. Struck from pure .9999 fine gold, the weight and purity of each Gold Kangaroo is guaranteed by the Australian government. The designs have changed annually since the series’ inception in 1990, and the reverse of each 2013 Gold Kangaroo features the graceful animal set against the great Australian bush. The coin is inscribed with the words AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO and 2013, along with the coin’s weight, purity and the mint mark P.
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 after considerable amounts of gold were found in Australian deposits. The newly-established mint created gold and silver sovereigns until Great Britain abandoned the gold standard in 1931. It remained under British control until 1971. It was deemed legal tender by the Australian Currency Act of 1965, and 1 Oz Gold Kangaroos have a worldwide mintage limit of 350,000. Each beautiful coin arrives in its mint sealed capsule for safe, long-term storage. Use our secure online ordering system to get yours today!
