Sales History


This Kangaroo at Sunset coin was struck in solid gold and the reverse was designed by Wojciech Pietranik, who has worked regularly for the Royal Australian Mint and The Perth Mint. It shows a Kangaroo with a larger than life reflection below making its way across a plain with a setting sun. There is no legend on the reverse. The obverse of the coin features the traditional Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, right-facing and crowned with the legend ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2010 25 DOLLARS around the edge. This coin was named Kangaroo at Sunset and originally came in a beautifully crafted wooden box with a sliding lid. It was embossed in gold with the Australian Government Crown along with Royal Australian Mint. A Certificate of Authenticity came with the coin, which includes a short description of the coin and information regarding the designer.
