Perth Mint started a craze in 1990 when it released the Silver Australian Kookaburra. This silver bullion coin started a trend of popular programs from the mint that featured native species from the continent, with new designs on the reverse each year. This was followed by the Lunar Series I, Silver Australian Koala, and Lunar Series II programs.
Australian Kangaroo silver bullion coins are the latest edition to the silver bullion lineup from Perth Mint. Like previous coins, these new products will feature a different design on the reverse each year, driving collectability for these coins higher. However, the Silver Australian Kangaroo is the first silver coin from the Perth Mint to ever feature .9999 fine silver.
In this product listing, you have a chance to purchase 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo coins with various year-of-issue marks available. Silver.com cannot guarantee the condition or year of issue on your coins, as the coins are not selected until your order is processed for shipping. Availability at this point determines the condition and date mark of your coin. Please note that coins in this listing with a date mark of 2016 or newer will feature .9999 fine silver content, while older issues produced in 2015 or earlier bear .999 fine silver content.
On the reverse of the 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo is the image of the red kangaroo hopping across the Outback, with radiating lines from the background meant to depict the rays of the sun. Male kangaroos use their powerful hind legs for more than movement, as they often fight with other males over female mates by leaning back on their tails and boxing one another with their legs.
The obverse of the Silver Australian Kangaroo coin includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This particular effigy of Her Majesty is a 1998 creation by Ian Rank-Broadley, and it represents the fourth-generation portrait of the Queen to appear on commonwealth coinage since her ascension to the throne of England in 1952.
