The kangaroo is a quintessential Australian icon. Perfectly adapted for the arid Australian outback and rural areas, kangaroos are herbivores and live on grass, plants, and shoots and obtain most of their water intake from the food they eat.
The Perth Mint is proud to present the 2016 Melbourne ANDA Money Expo Special, the Australian Kangaroo 1/2oz Silver Coloured Coin. A true Aussie icon, this year’s special was featured at the expo in August and depicts the kangaroo resting on its haunches in special ANDA Money Expo packaging.
Quality 99.9% Pure Silver
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver.
2016 Australian Kangaroo Design
The coin's reverse depicts an adult kangaroo in colour resting on its haunches with the silhouette of another kangaroo in the background. The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the 2016 year-date.
