The 2023 1 oz Australian Platinum Kangaroo Coin marks only the 6th time the Perth has offered a Platinum Kangaroo Coin. The Australian Kangaroo Series is one of the more diverse collections at the Perth Mint. Not only is the series one of the most diverse from Australia, but it is also one of the oldest with the gold coins in the series making an initial debut in late 1986.
The coin’s classic design portrays a bounding kangaroo surrounded by stylized rays of sunlight. The design incorporates the inscription "AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO", The Perth Mint’s traditional "P" mintmark, the 2023 year-date and the coin’s weight and purity.
All coins from the 2023 Australian Kangaroo Bullion Coin Series portray the official "Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse", featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of Her Majesty’s reign: 1952 – 2022.
