A pioneer of 24-carat gilding on modern numismatic coins, The Perth Mint is noted for releases featuring the selective application of this treatment on a coin’s central design motif. The reverse gilded concept switches this application to the background and in this case, is now also featured on the coin’s obverse.
This spectacular silver reverse gilded coin features a true blue Aussie icon – the Kangaroo – on a beautifully 24-carat gold gilded background.
Each coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 2 troy ounces of 99.99% pure silver, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the 2022 Reverse Gilded Australian Kangaroo Silver Coins.
The coin’s reverse portrays a bounding kangaroo. The background and other artistic elements, including representations of a joey, a grassy plain and hillocks, are gilded in 24-carat gold. Also within the gilded area is the inscriptions ‘KANGAROO’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, purity and 2022 year-date.
The obverse bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on a gilded background which includes the coin’s monetary denomination.
The coin delivers in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with a special illustrated shipper, the coin is also accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
