CoinGold Quarter Ounce 2019 Australian Kangaroo

The Australian quarter ounce gold piece (abbreviated as 1/4 oz and designated with Au for "gold") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints independently 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.

The Australian Koala series by the Perth Mint comes in several sizes and compositions. The reverse design changes every year, always featuring a koala - one of the most famous and distinctive animals native to Australia.

This coin is part of the long-running Australian Kangaroo bullion coin series by the Perth Mint, and is a "numismatic" issue with a one-year design. It was issued in bullion grade, as well as in proof.

The Mint says about it:
Featuring a charming design of an kangaroo in a stylised Australian outback setting, the 2019 1/4oz gold proof Australian Kangaroo is a superb tribute to the country’s most famous native animal. 2019 Kangaroo Design The coin’s reverse depicts a crouching kangaroo framed by stylised trees in a rural landscape, under the Australian sun.
