Mini Money Kookaburra 0.5 gram gold coin (2022 Royal Australian Mint)
One of the few producers occasionally issuing half-gram ‘minigold’ coins, the Royal Australian Mint started a new series in 2021, called Mini Money, launching with a neat Koala design. It’s back for 2022, continuing the series theme of iconic Australian animals, with the Kookaburra. Admittedly, this is a rendered image, but that does look very good. How well it translates to the 11.15 mm disc of gold, remains to be seen, but we’re constantly impressed by just how much detail these small coins can hold, as anyone that has seen a CIT minigold from the last few years will surely attest.
Struck in the mints frosted-uncirculated finish, it’s presented in a plastic slab, much like those used by the big grading agencies – NGC, for example. These are quite neat, although the little coin does look a bit lost in the sea of blue background. Perhaps some habitat art would improve things. A mintage of 5,000 pieces is on the lower side for minigold coins. An attractive release for this popular format. Available now for $90.00 AUD
