One of Perth Mint’s most popular annual coin releases is the Silver Kangaroo. Before the 2016 debut of an annual-release BU version of the coin with .9999 fine silver content, Perth Mint issued the coins on an annual basis as high-relief proofs. In keeping with other coins from the mint, each one has a new design for each date mark.

Perth Mint’s Silver Australian Kangaroo Series has been available for more than a decade. The collection of Proof High Relief coins within this series follows the trail of the Silver Kookaburra and Silver Koala in offering a new design element on the reverse field each year. Unlike the BU Silver Kangaroo, the Proof High Relief Coins come with presentation packaging and limited mintage figures each year.
All of these 2010 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Kangaroos are available to you through this listing in perfect condition. The NGC assigns a grade of PF70 to coins that have full, original mint luster and possess no detractions of any kind. The high-relief strike of this coin delivers greater visual depth to the background field and enhanced 3D relief for the design elements struck onto both sides.
On the obverse of 2010 1 oz Proof Silver Kangaroos is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait of the Queen is a right-profile relief that was created in 1998. It was the fourth-generation portrait for the Royal Mint and has served as the fifth-generation portrait on Australian coins from both the Perth Mint and Royal Australian Mint. In the design, the Queen is wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
The reverse side of 2010 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Kangaroos features two of the powerful marsupials fighting. It is often referred to as boxing when two kangaroos clash because they often stand on their powerful hind legs and use their shorter arms to deliver punches to a foe. In many cases, the kangaroo can also use its tail to lean back on and deliver an even more powerful blow with its hind legs.
