Kangaroos are a popular part of Australian culture. The kangaroo is arguably one of, if not the most, synonymous animals associated with the nation of Australia. Beyond being a native animal species, it is commonly used in governmental symbols and is part of the national coat of arms for Australia.
All of the 2012 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Kangaroo Coins in this listing come with a perfect certification from the NGC. A coin in PF70 condition has full, original mint luster and comes with no flaws of any kind on the designs or fields of the coin. These coins are ultra-cameo proofs with strong, frosted designs overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear backgrounds. The high-relief strike creates greater visual contrast and depth between the design and the background field.
On the obverse of 2012 Proof Silver Australian Kangaroos is an image of Queen Elizabeth II. The longest-reigning monarch in English history, Elizabeth II holds the official title of Queen of Australia in her role as the sovereign head of the Commonwealth of Australia. The design shows the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, an item gifted to her grandmother, Mary of Teck, upon her marriage to the future King George V, the Queen’s grandfather.
The reverse side of the 2012 1 oz Proof Silver Kangaroos shows a kangaroo in the Outback. This kangaroo is shown standing on its hind legs with its short arms resting in front of it. In the background, a water well and a windmill are featured within the design element.
