The first coin features a pair of boxing kangaroos. Docile and friendly for the most part, Australian kangaroos sometimes brawl with one another. The fights include punching, scratching and other bad-tempered behaviour.
A male kangaroo is called a ‘buck’, ’ boomer’ or ‘jack’ and usually it’s one of these large males who starts a fight. He wants the others to know who’s boss so he’ll square-up to another male who might be thinking the same thing.
Kangaroo fights can be very fierce and go on for many rounds. Eventually, the animal with the best boxing skills is victorious, although just like boxing in the human world, he must continue to prove himself against future rivals.
