The Perth Mint is one of the largest and most well-known mints in the world. As one of Western Australia’s largest exporters, the Perth Mint produces some of the most renowned bullion coins yearly, along with investment grade cast and minted bullion bars.
The Perth Mint was the third and final branch facility of the Royal Mint of England, founded in 1899. Starting in 1902, Australia’s federation movement changed the status of the mints in Australia, hence, by 1965, the Royal Australian Mint had opened as a new sovereign mint for the independent nation and the Perth Mint was then transferred to the Western Australia government.

This design is inspired by the 1936 design of a leaping red kangaroo created for the Australian copper penny. This basically highlights a kangaroo in left-profile relief leaping through the design element with a sunburst image in the background.
The obverse features Queen Elizabeth II. The Queens bust on this side of the coin is the sixth-generation Australian effigy designed in July 2015 for the Royal Mint of England as the fifth-generation British design. Thus, it shows the Queen in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown.
