CoinGold Kilo 2019 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.

Originally known as the Gold Australian Nugget, the Bullion Kangaroo Coin is the one of the largest bullion coin program from the Perth Mint. The first 1 kg Australian Perth Mint Kangaroo Coin was released in 1991. Of the range of five 2019 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 depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown and the Victoria Coronation necklace worn for her Coronation. This is her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide and "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, in "uncouped" version - showing the Queen's shoulders and not terminating at the neck as the normal version.

On the left, in small letters on the Queen's shoulder, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 3000 DOLLARS ·.
