There is no native species from the Australian continent more popular and beloved than the kangaroo. The koala is lovable and cute, while the crocodile is known as an apex predator, but the kangaroo captures the imagination like no other animal. The largest marsupial in the world, it is also the only mammal that moves by hopping.
These 2017 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo coins feature a gilded finish. A gilded coin features a 24-karat gold layering applied to one or more of the design features. In the case of these 2017 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo coins, the gilded finish is applied to the image of the kangaroo on the coin’s reverse as it bounds across the Outback plains of Australia.
On the reverse of the 2017 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.
All 2017 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo Gilded Coins in this product listing are in BU condition. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the coining process.
