The Australian Silver Kangaroo was initially issued by The Perth Mint as an unlimited 1oz bullion coin. Unparalleled worldwide interest has resulted in more than 10 million being released to the market – putting it in the record book as the most heavily sought-after contemporary precious metal Australian coin to date.
This popularity has prompted the Mint to issue a limited number of supreme quality proof versions which are now available as a Four-Coin Set comprising 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz coins, as well as an individual 1/4oz silver proof coin. This exclusive set is not to be missed!
Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Silver
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, and 1/10oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.
Iconic Stuart Devlin design
The reverse of each coin depicts the iconic Stuart Devlin design of a bounding kangaroo surrounded by stylised rays of sunlight. The design is bordered by the inscription AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the 2016 year-date, and the coin’s weight and fineness.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, each coin depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the 2016 Australian Kangaroo Silver Proof Four-Coin Set.
Beautiful Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate
The set is housed in a classic Perth Mint presentation case with a themed, customised shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Buyers of the first 250 sets will recieve a complimentary Australian opal gold-plated sterling silver kangaroo pin.
