Australian Silver Kangaroo Coins

Buy Australian Silver Kangaroo Coins Online

The uncirculated Australian Silver Kangaroo coin has quickly become the flagship silver bullion item of the Perth Mint since it was first made available to buy in 2015. Since then, its popularity has eclipsed that of other Australian silver coins including the koala and the kookaburra.  Though Australia is best known for its prowess in the gold industry, it wields no less power in the arena of silver.  In fact, Australia is among the world’s largest producers of silver. This prosperity translates into the production of a wide array of silver bullion bars and coins of which the Australian Silver Kangaroo coin remains one of Perth Mint’s most in-demand offerings. All Australian Silver Kangaroo coins are struck from 1 troy ounce of .9999 pure silver and are assigned a face value of AUD $1 by the Australian government.

Queen Elizabeth II and Dr. Stuart Devlin’s Red Kangaroo

The ubiquitous image of the Commonwealth’s current ruler, Queen Elizabeth II, can be seen on the obverse of the Australian Silver Kangaroo coin.  Coins dated 2015 to 2018 feature the fourth definitive coin portrait of Her Majesty designed by British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS in which she sports the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.  Starting in 2019, the series now features the sixth definitive coin portrait by Jody Clark, an updated design of his fifth coin portrait.  In addition to the Diamond Diadem and Coronation Earrings on Clark’s earlier design, her covered shoulders are now shown along with the Victorian Coronation Necklace.

The coin’s eponymous kangaroo, however, is its defining feature. Australia is known for its wealth of indigenous species including koalas, kookaburras, platypus, and crocodiles, but the nation’s largest marsupial, the kangaroo, is arguably the most iconic of them.  In fact, the red kangaroo is the national animal of Australia so it was only proper that in selecting the design to be used on the coin, that the Perth Mint honor Dr. Stuart Devlin’s beloved depiction of a red kangaroo mid-bound.  This famous design happened to be the first kangaroo design ever used on the Australian Gold Nugget series in 1990.  However, unlike its Australian Gold Kangaroo sister series, the silver version does not feature new designs annually.

Other Design Elements

On the obverse of the coin, the words ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 1 DOLLAR appear around the periphery.  An intricate and delicate wave pattern that are hard for counterfeiters to replicate appears behind these inscriptions.

On the reverse is minted the series’ name, AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO, the Perth Mint mintmark, P, the year of issue, the weight, 1 oz, and the purity, 9999 SILVER.  In addition to the wave pattern also appearing on the back side, there is the additional security feature of a micro-engraved A found.  If you look closely under magnification at the first A in AUSTRALIAN, you will notice this smaller A within it.

The Proof Predecessor

The uncirculated Australian Silver Kangaroo coin was not the first silver coin released by the Perth Mint to feature the marsupial.   More than 20 years earlier in 1993, its predecessor, a proof version, was issued for the first time and annually thereafter.  Unlike the uncirculated version that uses one static kangaroo design and is minted to meet demand, the proof version features a new kangaroo design each year and is minted in limited quantities making it highly collectible.  This restricted mintage of proof coins means that once the limit has been reached, no more will be produced that year.
