Australia has been minting gold kangaroo coins since 1986 (although at first, they called them “gold nuggets”). The entire series was renamed the Australian gold kangaroo in 1990. This makes sense, because these gold bullion coins receive a new kangaroo-themed reverse design every year. 

In 2022, the 1 oz Australian kangaroo features a pair of Australia’s native red kangaroos, a mother and joey, bounding across the Outback. 

Here’s what Perth Mint has to say about the 2022 Australian kangaroo design:

No wildlife symbol more powerfully equates with Australia than our beloved kangaroo. In 2022, the marsupial famed for the way it bounds on elongated hind legs, is portrayed with its joey bounding across a flat, grassy plain with hillocks on the horizon… Skipping over scorched red dirt and spinifex, or seeking shade in sweet-scented eucalypt forest, the kangaroo is as unique as the ancient landscapes it symbolises… The Australian Kangaroo 2022 1oz gold bullion coin portrays a kangaroo and its joey bounding across a flat, grassy plain with hillocks on the horizon.

As you’d expect, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse of every Australian gold kangaroo coin. As of 2022, Perth Mint uses the 2015 Jody Clark portrait created for the Royal Mint of England, showing the Queen in right-profile wearing her uncle George IV’s state diadem crown.

2022 1/2 oz Australian kangaroo gold coin highlights:

  • Contains 1/2 troy oz of 0.9999 (“four nines fine”) pure gold
  • 36th coin in the 1 oz Australian gold kangaroo series
  • 100,000 mintage limit for 2022 1/2 oz gold kangaroo
  • Australian government-Issued with a face value of $50
  • Brand new reverse design for 2022 features a kangaroo and its joey exploring a grassy plain
  • Micro-laser engraved security feature on the reverse stymies counterfeiting
  • Coins arrive in protective plastic flip cases to preserve their brilliant, uncirculated condition

About the Australian gold kangaroo series

Every year since 1990, gold kangaroo coins from Perth Mint have been available to bullion buyers worldwide in the current format. Each year, Perth Mint changes up the design and the style of the kangaroo(s) featured on the reverse of the 1 oz and fractional gold kangaroo coins (1/2 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz). They also mint a humongous 1 kg gold kangaroo variation, but this one uses the classic Stuart Devlin-designed kangaroo surrounded by rays of sun.

The 2022 installment of the Australian gold kangaroo series includes variable mintages. Both the 1 oz gold kangaroo featured here and the 1 kg super-kangaroo have an unlimited mintage, while 2022’s fractional gold kangaroos all have fixed mintage limits.

How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.

How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes. 


How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships. 


Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.

Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.

We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.


What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.


Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California.  We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.

No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.


My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection. 
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions.

What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
