The first Australian Kangaroo gold coin issued by The Perth Mint in 1989 featured an iconic bounding Red Kangaroo. Designed by Dr Stuart Devlin AO CMG, goldsmith and jeweller to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, this classic creation has since been featured on the kilo release each year in the highly sought-after bullion series.

To commemorate the 25th anniversary since this iconic design was first issued on an Australian legal tender coin, The Perth Mint is pleased to present a limited edition tribute coin replicating the original artistry.

The release of the 2014 1oz Gold Bullion Tribute Coin coincides with the One Tonne Coin embarking on a road show to some of Europe's most famous cities early in the New Year.

1 Tonne Gold Kangaroo Coin

The Perth Mint, Australia's historic precious metals Mint, has achieved a record-breaking triumph with the successful casting of the world's largest gold bullion coin, inspired by the popular Australian kangaroo gold coin series.

Made from one tonne of 99.99% pure gold, the giant coin is a magnificent Australian icon symbolising one of the Mint's most extraordinary accomplishments in its 112 year history.

It measures nearly 80 centimetres wide and over 12 centimetres thick. It has Australian legal tender status. And at one tonne (1,000kg), it's the biggest, heaviest, inherently most valuable gold bullion coin in the world.
