Gold Two Ounces 2023 Australian Kangaroo, Coin from Australia
CoinGold Two Ounces 2023 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.

The mint says about it:
Symbolising Australia’s finest coin-making traditions, this superb Australian Kangaroo is struck from 2oz of 99.99% pure gold with a flawless proof finish.

Australia’s most famous marsupial, the kangaroo has appeared on The Perth Mint’s signature coin series since 1989. Featuring superbly observed portrayals of the iconic animal, the Australian Kangaroo Coin Series has a reputation for quality, purity and design that extends around the globe.

Obverse
Australia / Gold Two Ounces 2023 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 1952 - 2022 · AUSTRALIA · 200 DOLLARS ·.

The legend is interrupted by the "memorial" inclusion of the dates of the Queen's reign, 1952 - 2022.
