This video tells the story of how Australia’s very first Kangaroo gold “coins” came to be produced in Melbourne during the 1850s. Extraordinarily rare, the historic gold pieces have been re-created by The Perth Mint in association with the Smithsonian Institution in America, where one of the original issues now resides.
