The Perth Mint is known around the world for its silver bullion and gold bullion coin collections. The mint was one of the pioneers of changing designs on the obverse and reverse fields of its coins. While the Silver Australian Kangaroos are part of those broad series, it is also the only coin that does not change its reverse images of the native marsupial. Today, 2021 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroos are available to you online at Silver.com.

The Australian Kangaroo Series is available in gold and silver from the mint each year, but the coin programs have significant differences. First and foremost, the Gold Kangaroo Series has been available from the mint since 1990 and features new designs of the kangaroo on the reverse with regularity. The Silver Kangaroo Series did not become an annual investment-grade issue until 2016, but did set a new benchmark for the mint with its .9999 fine silver content, a first among the Perth Mint’s major silver bullion coins.
All of the 2021 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroos in this listing are available to purchase individually or in bulk options. Bulk packaging options are direct from the mint and consist of acrylic tubes of 25 coins or mini-Monster Boxes of 250 coins. The Monster Box has 10 25-coin tubes inside. All individual coins ship in plastic flips. Each coin is available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
On the obverse face of the 2021 Silver Australian Kangaroo is a bust of Queen Elizabeth II. The longest-reigning monarch in English history, Elizabeth II is also known as the Queen of Australia and her portrait has featured on Australian coins since 1952. This particular design from Jody Clark is the sixth to feature on Australian coins. It shows the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the ornate George IV State Diadem Crown, a piece from the official Crown Jewels.
The reverse side of 2021 1 oz Silver Kangaroos includes the iconic red kangaroo design. This image of a kangaroo leaping across the coin field with a stylized sunburst behind it is based on a copper penny design introduced in 1936. This design features on the reverse every year in this series.
