A Golden Kangaroo That Will Easily Fit In Your Pouch
According to some legends still held true by Australian Aborigines, the kangaroo is regarded as a lucky charm. The story tells about a young man who wore a pouch around his neck that was made from a kangaroo. After the pouch stopped a spear thrown at him by an enemy, the man wore the pouch for the rest of his long and happy life. Now you can carry a miniature kangaroo with you wherever you go thanks to this, the eleventh release in The Perth Mint’s Gold Mini Kangaroo series!
Besides being a golden good luck totem, this adorable 2020-dated Australia Gold Mini Roo makes an incredible gift struck in a half-gram of 99.99% pure gold. Each coin is two dollars legal tender in Australia and bears a one-year-only design of an adult kangaroo with a joey in the background. The obverse features the traditional effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
