Animals of Australia
First issued in 1989, the Australian Kangaroo is an iconic annual coin series portraying our most recognised animal symbol. Treasured for the way they hop on elongated hind legs and rear ‘joeys’ in the female’s pouch, tens of millions of kangaroos inhabit diverse landscapes across the vast Australian continent.
High relief strike
The coin’s high relief artistry portrays a kangaroo enjoying a reflective moment as it crouches peacefully among Waratah and Kangaroo Paw native wildflowers. Included on the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Deluxe presentation case
Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin is housed in a deluxe timber display case and themed shipper.
