2020 Mini Roo Half Gramme Gold Bullion Coin from Australia.
This collectable Perth Mint coin is struck in 24 carat (.9999 fine) gold and has a nominal face value of two Australian dollars.
Small coins such as these are highly affordable and make a wonderful gift or keepsake portraying an appealing kangaroo design!
The Perth Mint was established in 1899, primarily to mint Australian gold into British sovereigns, a role which it fulfilled until 1931. As such, it is Australia's oldest mint still producing bullion coins. It is one of the world's most active mints in both bullion and collectors coins, producing gold, silver, and platinum coins for its native Australia, and other countries.
To fill demand for smaller sizes of coins, both for jewellery and for investment, all of the countries which issue one ounce bullion coins also produce smaller gold coins. Some also produce fifteenth ounce or twentieth ounce coins, but these are usually too expensive to be considered by any serious investor. The fractional sizes obviously cost almost as much per coin to produce as the larger one ounce coins, and therefore have a higher percentage premium compared with their gold value. They are all issued at increasingly high premiums as their size diminishes, and have not been as popular with investors as their large one ounce counterparts.
Jody Clark's portrait of HM The Queen is shown on the obverse. This is the fifth definitive portrait of Elizabeth II.
The reverse shows a kangaroo and a joey. The inscription reads:
