SILVER KANGAROO BY THE PERTH MINT
AUSTRALIA’S BULLION COIN
The new Silver Kangaroo coin honours the classic design which has featured on the Australian Kangaroo gold kilo release for more than two decades, and is the first Australian coin to be struck to the purity of 9999 silver.
Offering a new security detail, the coin includes an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter ‘A’, which can be found within the first A of AUSTRALIA. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass and is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.
Each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.
