2016 Silver Kangaroo Coin Series - The Perth Mint is pleased to present the 2016 1oz Kangaroo Silver coin for the first time.
Each 1oz Silver bullion coin has been struck in .9999 fine Silver, making it highly desirable to both investors and collectors. The Silver Kangaroo has an Australian legal tender value of $1 (AUD).
The reverse of Australia’s Silver Kangaroo coin features a classic red kangaroo mid-bound in front of a stylised star burst, designed by Dr Stuart Devlin. The obverse has the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II along with the “1 Dollar” denomination (these coins also are known as Silver kangaroo dollars).
As a Perth Mint first, the Australian Silver coins include an authentication feature on the reverse in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter “A” within the first A of “Australia”, which is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
