The Perth Mint launched its native wildlife-themed silver bullion coins with the debut of the Silver Kookaburra in 1990. The coins in this broad series of annual issues grew in the 2000s with the introduction of the Silver Koala in 2007 and the Silver Wedge Tail Eagle in 2014. All of these coins used new designs on a regular basis of the namesake animal. When the Silver Kangaroo came along in 2016, it broke the mold. Today, 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroos are available in perfect condition to you online at Silver.com.

The 2016 release of the Silver Australian Kangaroo established a series that was previously issued by the mint as a proof coin. The new Silver Australian Kangaroo bucked tradition in silver collections by using the same design on the reverse of a leaping kangaroo each year. Another major first was the use of .9999 fine silver content in an annual-release bullion coin. In 2018, other collections from Perth would take up this position as well.
All of the 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroos in this product listing come with a perfect certification. Either the PCGS or the NGC issued the Mint State 70 certification to these coins that indicate the presence of full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind on the design elements or surface areas.
Silver.com offers these coins at random. Once your payment has been processed, our warehouse team selects a coin to fulfill your order at our discretion. All 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroos are guaranteed to feature a Mint State 70 grade, but we do not guarantee the date mark, presence of additional labels such as First Strike and Early Release, or the grading house that issued the certifications. If you purchase multiples, you may receive several coins with the same date mark and additional labels.
Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse of all 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroos. This series debuted with the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the Queen created in 1998 and showcasing Her Majesty with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. In 2018, the coins shifted to use the new Jody Clark design of the Queen at age 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
A kangaroo is shown in the same design on the reverse of all 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo Coins. The depiction comes with a kangaroo in left-profile relief hopping across the Outback and is based on a 1930s copper penny design.
