1/2 oz Kangaroo Gold Coin | 2024

There you see it again: the kangaroo, one of Australia's heraldic animals alongside the emu. It is also interesting to note that both animals can only move forwards, which promptly makes them a symbol of progress! The Australian airline Quantas Airways is also adorned with the emblem of the kangaroo, although in this case it has been given a streamlined appearance - fitting for an airline.

The particularly renowned Australian mint "The Perth Mint" depicts these animals on the coin series, which has been given a new kangaroo motif every year since 1990.

Obverse

On it you can see a kangaroo in a typical Australian landscape of the outback. The prevailing extreme temperatures and other extremely harsh conditions are particularly significant here. This is also indicated by the very sculpturally designed stone floor on which the kangaroo is standing. On the left-hand side you can see a structure that looks like a windmill. However, it is actually a water pump with a windmill that pumps water for the herds of cattle. The kangaroo is "framed" by the words "2024 1/2 oz 9999 GOLD", followed by the word "KANGAROO" in capital letters. You will recognize "P125" at approximately the height of the animal's tail. The Perth Mint has erected a monument to itself here, as this combination of letters and numbers is intended to commemorate the 125th anniversary of this mint.

Reverse

You can see the likeness of the new English King Charles III, who, unlike his mother, Elizabeth II, is looking to the left. If you look closely, you will see the initials "DT" at about shoulder height. This is the name Dane Thorne, a product designer at the British mint "The Royal Mint". The inscriptions "CHARLES III" "AUSTRALIA" and the face value "15 DOLLARS" appear around the coin. The fine weight of the coin is 15.55175g.
