The half ounce kangaroo coin is one of the most appealing forms of physical gold investments that are on the market today. This gold coin comes with a 50 dollar face value, but has more than enough gold to be worth a great deal more than that. These coins have half an ounce of .9999 pure gold in every one, making them an ideal investment choice for people who want to store moderate amounts of wealth in a safe, physical commodity. These coins are plentiful and can be ordered in bulk, which has contributed a bit to their popularity.
These gold coins are minted in Perth and bear this mint mark on the obverse side of the coin. Like all of the other Kangaroo gold coins from Australia, the obverse side of the coin features a powerful kangaroo as it looks over its shoulder towards the great outback. This side will also list the amount of gold in each coin as well as the year it was minted. On the reverse side of the coin is the denomination or face value of the coin, 50 dollars, along with a bust of Queen Elizabeth II with the word Australia on the edge of the coin. Overall, this is a rather good and popular coin for investment.
