Gold Kilo 2011 Australian Kangaroo, Coin from Australia
CoinGold Kilo 2011 Australian Kangaroo

The Australian one kilo gold piece (abbreviated as 1 kg and designated with Au for "gold") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This massive one kilogram gold coin is part of the long-running Australian Kangaroo bullion coin series by the Perth Mint.

Of the range of five 2011 Australian Kangaroo gold bullion coins, only the 1 kilo gold coin portrays the classic artistry of a bounding red kangaroo encircled by symbolic rays of sunshine.

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 3000 DOLLARS ·.
