The 2024 1 oz Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins are now available to order at GoldClub Direct! Minted through 2025, the Perth Mint has set mintage numbers for the fractional coins, while the 1 oz and 1 Kilo gold coins remain uncapped.
Once recognized as the Australian Nugget, the Australian Gold Kangaroo was created in 1986. Formally updated in 1990, the red kangaroo immediately became identifiable with the island down under. While the 1 Kilo coin design remains unchanged, utilizing the original design of a kangaroo surrounded by sun rays created by Stuart Devlin, the mint changes the image of the kangaroo of the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins. Annually, the 1 oz and fractional-ounce gold coins typically receive an updated design. .
The reverse design of the 2024 Australian Gold Kangaroos features an adult kangaroo in stride, with an Australian water tower and windmill in the background. Additional features include the word “KANGAROO”, mint mark “P125” for the Perth Mint, as well as the date, weight, and purity of the coin.
The 2024 Kangaroo also marks the debut portrait of King Charles III, featured on the obverse. Skillfully depicted by Dan Thorne, King Charles III is show without a crown and in left-profile relief.
