Iconic kangaroo

Featuring the 2016 Australian Kangaroo design.  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 in the market - putting in the record book as the most heavily-sought after contemporary precious metal Australian coin to date.

Original kangaroo design

The reverse of the coin depicts a bounding kangaroo surrounded by stylised rays of sunlight and 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.
