Each 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo Coin in this listing comes to you with a thin layer of 24-karat gold in the gilded finish. This is applied only to the kangaroo on the reverse of the coin and serves to create visual separation. The kangaroo stands out beautifully against its background field of silver.
The 2019 Silver Australian Kangaroo Gilded Coins ship to you inside of the Perth Mint’s classic black clamshell display case. Those cases are sent to you inside of a themed shipper that bears artwork of a kangaroo leaping across a sunlit horizon. The printing on the shipper reads “2019 Gilded Australian Kangaroo.” The coins in this release also come with individually numbered Certificates of Authenticity.
On the reverse of the 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo Gilded Coin is the image of a kangaroo at rest. The largest marsupial in the world, the kangaroo is native to Australia and is an unofficial emblem of the nation used by units within the Royal Australian Air Force and commercial agencies such as the airline Qantas.
The kangaroo on the reverse of these coins differs from the silver bullion Australian Kangaroo release of 2019. While the latter coin maintains its design from 2016, the gilded coins have their own unique design each year. This year’s field includes a kangaroo at rest with all four paws on the ground as it surveys the area around itself. Barren trees in the background frame a design field and reach up to the moon in the sky overhead.
For the obverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo Coins, the Perth Mint uses the new design of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the sixth effigy of the Queen to feature on Australian coins since 1953 and is the first since 1966 to include her neckline and shoulders in the design field.
