  OPALPLUS TRADING AS COINSPLUS HAS BEEN PURCHASER OF PERTH MINT COINS SINCE EARLY 1980s

IN AUGUST 2007 WE WERE APPROVED AS AUTHORIZED DEALER FOR PERTH MINT AUSTRALIA

Struck from 2oz of pure silver, this stunningly original Kangaroo coin is the first Perth Mint release to feature ‘reverse gilding’.

Key features:

  • 99.99% pure silver

  • First ‘reverse gilded’ coin design

  • Australian legal tender

  • 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.

    Reverse gilded design

    A pioneer of 24-carat gilding in modern numismatics, The Perth Mint is noted for releases featuring the selective application of this treatment on the central design motif. In a new innovation, we’ve ‘reversed’ the process on this coin by applying it to the design background instead of the bounding kangaroo. The gilded area includes the inscription ‘KANGAROO’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

    A similarly gilded obverse means the Queen’s effigy is surrounded by a layer of 24-carat gold.
