The Perth Mint has a long history of issuing silver bullion coins with images inspired by native species to the continent. The kangaroo has long featured on a gold bullion series originally known as the Gold Australian Nugget from 1986 to 1989, but has been released as the Gold Australian Kangaroo since 1990.
Other silver-specific collections available from the Perth Mint include the Silver Australian Kookaburra, Silver Australian Koala, and Silver Australian Wedge Tail Eagle. While all of these coins predate the release of the bullion Silver Australian Kangaroo, it was the Kangaroo that was the first to use .9999 fine silver content. Additionally, the Kangaroo is the only release among these that uses the same reverse design each year rather than switching up the images from one year to the next.
On the obverse side of the 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Soon after the mint introduced this collection, the effigy of Her Majesty was updated to a sixth-generation design. In 2016 and 2017, the fifth-generation Ian Rank-Broadley design originally created in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England featured on the coins. In 2018, the new Jody Clark design created in 2015 for the Royal Mint of England debuted on the coin.
The reverse face of Silver Australian Kangaroos includes a leaping kangaroo. The marsupial is shown in left-profile relief as it hops along with stylized rays of sunshine emanating from the background field of the coin.
These 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroos are available to you as near-perfect specimens. Coins in Mint State 69 condition showcase full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws include minuscule contact marks or hairlines only.
