Australian Gold Kangaroo coins always feature a new image of one of the four kangaroo species that inhabit the Australian continent. This years design comes from Aleysha Howarth and depicts a red kangaroo mother with its young joey. The red kangaroo is the largest member of the marsupial species and is the largest terrestrial mammal native to Australia.

In the background, the adults young joey stands nearby. The 1 oz coins in this series have a new authentication feature included for 2020. That authentication feature takes the form of a single letter engraved into the Australian Kangaroo phrase at the top of this side of the coin and it is only visible under magnification.
