    Wholly dooly! ๐Ÿ™‚

    2012 Discover Australia – Red Kangaroo 1/2oz Gold Proof Coin 1217ECAA AUS $1,495.00

    For the same price, Perth customersI can buy the following limited edition bullion gold coins:

    *2012 Australian Kangaroo 1/2 oz Gold Bullion Coin = $853.26

    *2012 Australian Kangaroo 1/4oz Gold Bullion Coin = $513.54

    Regardless, the Discover Australia gold proof set contain very nice coins; it’s also nice to see the coins available individually.

    Unfortunately, they seem a little to expensive, so I’ll stick with the Discover Australia 2012 Silver Five-Coin Set for $535.00 ๐Ÿ™‚
