Direct Coins is pleased to present the 25th Anniversary of the Australian Kangaroo 2014 2oz Gold Proof High Relief Coin, celebrating 25 years of the classic red kangaroo design.
The iconic red kangaroo design featured on the 25th anniversary commemorative was originally introduced as part of the Australian Nugget gold coin program as the new theme for the 1989 Proof Issue.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality and in a prestigious high relief format, and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 250 of the Australian Kangaroo 2014 25th Anniversary 2oz Gold Proof High Relief Coin.
The reverse of the coin portrays a bounding red kangaroo surrounded by stylised rays of sunlight, and bordered by the inscription AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO 9999 GOLD and the year-dates 1989 – 2014. A special Perth Mint anniversary mintmark ‘P25’ also appears in the design.
The obverse of the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and 2014 year date.
The coin’s high-relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
This coin is housed in a special wooden display case. This coin is presented in an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
