Product of the Week: 2013 Australian Gold Kangaroos

australiangoldOn Oct 1, 2012, the Perth Mint in Australia released the latest issue of a popular Gold bullion series: the 2013 Australian Gold Kangaroo. Much like the previous releases in this series, these Gold Kangaroos are issued as Australian legal tender and guaranteed by the Commonwealth Government of Australia.

The 2013 Australian Gold Kangaroos are offered in sizes of 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz and 1 oz, as well as the larger 1 kilo size. The smaller sizes (1/10 oz to 1 oz) have limited mintages of no more than 350,000, depending on size, which gives them high numismatic value. Their worldwide distribution facilitates easy purchase and liquidation, making them good investment pieces, as well.

The Australian Gold Kangaroos have been offered by the Perth Mint since 1989 and are one of the few Gold bullion coins to change its reverse design each year. This year’s issue depicts a kangaroo standing against the Australian outback. The kilo coin differs slightly, in that the image is instead a hopping Red Kangaroo. The “P” mint mark appears on the reverse of each coin, along with the inscriptions “Australian Kangaroo,” the date, size of the coin, and the purity, “9999 Gold.” The obverse of each coin shows the Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Queen Elizabeth II, as well as the coin’s monetary denomination.

The Perth Mint opened in 1899, originally serving as a branch of Britain’s Royal Mint to help supply Gold sovereigns and half sovereigns, which were used as everyday circulating coins throughout the British Empire. In 1970, control of the mint passed from Britain to the Western Australian Government, which still owns it today.

Product of the Week: 2013 1 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra

2013 1 oz Silver Australian KookaburraIn 1990, the Perth Mint of Australia began minting an unusual Silver bullion coin: the Silver Kookaburra. These beautiful coins celebrate the very interesting bird native to Australia. The kookaburra is the world’s largest kingfisher and is sometimes called the “laughing jackass” because of its chattering calls. Each year features a different reverse design, and the 2013 is believed to be one of the stand-outs of the entire series!

The reverse of this year’s issue displays two kookaburras sitting on a tree branch, similar to the 1994 and 2001 designs, but in much nicer detail. Each 1 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra contains .999 fine Silver and includes prooflike frosting in the central design. The obverse of this Silver coin features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and lists the face value of the coin, which originally was $5, but was lowered to $1 in 1992.

The Perth Mint began in 1899 as a branch of Britain’s Royal Mint in order to help supply the Gold sovereigns and half sovereigns that were used as everyday circulating coins throughout the British Empire. In 1970, control of the mint passed from Britain to the Western Australian Government, which still owns it to this day.

Product of the Week: 2013 Silver Canadian Antelope

2013 1 oz Silver Canadian AntelopeIn 2011, the Royal Canadian Mint released the first in what would quickly become an extremely popular three-year series: The Canadian Wildlife Series. They have released two coins in each of the past two years and have announced the first of two releases for 2013 – the Silver Pronghorn Antelope.

The pronghorn antelope can be found in south central Canada and throughout western and central United States. It is often cited as the second-fastest land mammal, behind only the cheetah, with the ability to run more than 50 miles per hour, though some measurements of more than 60 miles per hour have been recorded. However, unlike the cheetah, the pronghorn is able to sustain these speeds over great distances. For this reason, the pronghorn has few natural predators.

To celebrate this beautiful creature, the Silver Pronghorn Antelope coin features a pronghorn walking across a grassy vista, masterfully crafted by designer Emily S. Damstra. The obverse of the coin bears Susanna Blunt’s likeness of Queen Elizabeth II, which has been used on coinage since 2003. Like the other Canadian Wildlife Series coins, this issue has one full ounce of .999 fine Silver, making it among the purest Silver bullion coins available.

This first release dated 2013 has a limited mintage of 1 million coins, and they are sure to sell quickly, but you can order yours today from APMEX! Since this is the 2013 coin, shipping to you is expected by September 21, so reserve yours today before its official release! APMEX makes it easy to buy Silver by offering competitive prices on all Silver bullion.
