Gold Two Ounces 2020 Australian Kangaroo, Coin from Australia
CoinGold Two Ounces 2020 Australian Kangaroo

The Australian two ounces gold piece (abbreviated as 2 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.

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 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.

The Mint says about it:
This prestigious pure gold coin from our signature Australian Kangaroo series offers unparalleled design definition as a result of its high relief proof quality strike.

First issued in 1989, the Australian Kangaroo is an iconic annual coin series portraying our most recognised animal symbol. Treasured for the way they hop on elongated hind legs and rear young "joeys" in the female’s pouch, tens of millions of kangaroos inhabit diverse landscapes across the vast Australian continent.

Featuring noticeably raised relief, the coin’s reverse portrays a wonderfully composed portrait of two kangaroos framed by native grass trees in flawless proof quality.

Obverse
Australia / Gold Two Ounces 2020 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 · 200 DOLLARS ·.
