The Silver Australian Kangaroo coin is one of the more popular products from the Perth Mint. Like the Australian Koala coin, it is struck on an annual basis in both gold and silver, with various weights and versions available. Increasing the collectible value of these coins is the fact that a new design is used each year.
In Australia, there are few native species more widely revered than the kangaroo. The world’s largest marsupial, kangaroos have a unique movement that combines hopping on large hind legs and balance courtesy of an oversized, muscular tail. The kangaroo is an unofficial symbol of the nation, and appears on the Australian national emblem along with the emu.
On the obverse side of the 2015 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo Proof Coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy is featured along with the engravings of “Elizabeth II,” “Australia,” and the coin’s face value.
The reverse side features the all-new kangaroo design. In the image, an adult kangaroo is shown hopping across the open landscape of the Outback, with an exaggerated representation of the moon rising into the sky in the background.
Originally founded in 1899, the Perth Mint was the final facility in the Royal Mint system during British colonial rule of Australia. Today, the mint is a state-owned facility of Western Australia, and though it is not associated with the Royal Australian Mint, its products are considered legal tender under the Currency Act of 1965.
