Gold Tenth-Ounce 2022 Australian Kangaroo, Coin from Australia
CoinGold Tenth-Ounce 2022 Australian Kangaroo

The Australian tenth-ounce gold piece (abbreviated as 1/10 oz 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.

The first coins in this format were issued by the Perth Mint in what was then called the Australian Nugget series - named after the natural gold nuggets featured on the reverse. However, the series soon started featuring kangaroos instead, and was eventually renamed to Australian Kangaroo.

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

The Mint says about it:
Skipping over scorched red dirt and spinifex, or seeking shade in sweet-scented eucalypt forest, the kangaroo is as unique as the ancient landscapes it symbolises. In tribute to our most iconic wildlife emblem, we’re honoured to present stunning new artistry on Australia’s signature gold bullion coin series.

The Australian Kangaroo 2022 1/10oz gold bullion coin portrays a kangaroo and its joey bounding across a flat, grassy plain with hillocks on the horizon. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, Kangaroo gold bullion coins have been trusted for their weight and purity by investors worldwide for more than three decades.

Obverse
Australia / Gold Tenth-Ounce 2022 Australian Kangaroo - obverse photo

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 · 15 DOLLARS ·.
