Kangaroos offer protection

A tiny newborn kangaroo crawls into its mother’s pouch where it receives nourishment and protection until it feels safe enough to emerge for increasing periods of time. Eventually able to stand on its own two feet, the young ‘joey’ soon learns to hop alongside its watchful parent.

Kangaroo and joey design

The coin portrays an image of a kangaroo and its joey in scrubland. Included in the design are radial lines suggestive of the setting sun, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Memorial Obverse

The coin bears The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of Her Majesty’s reign. As well as radial lines, the obverse also includes the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination and 2023 year-date.

Authentication feature

For additional peace of mind, the coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.


With a maximum mintage of 75,000, the Mother and Baby Kangaroo 2023 2oz Silver Bullion Piedfort Coin is available without capsule in a protective, convenient tube of 10 coins. Also available is a monster box containing 10 tubes.
