An Iconic Product of the Perth Mint, the 1/4 oz 2022 Australian Kangaroo Gold Proof Coin, is a striking tribute to Australia's most beloved and iconic animal. The Australian kangaroo has a distinctive style of movement, hopping on its hind legs whilst using its large muscular tail for balance, making it one of the only animals which are unable to move backwards. This is one of the reasons why the kangaroo bearers the Australian Coat of Arms as it signifies a country moving forward.
