Three of Australia’s most recognisable bush creatures feature on these stunning silver coloured coins.
The kangaroo is the largest marsupial surviving on earth today. An unofficial symbol of Australia, the kangaroo features in the Australian national emblem alongside the emu.
The koala is a warm-blooded marsupial that lives mainly on the eastern coast of Australia. Dependent on whether it is found in the southern parts of eastern Australia or in the northern parts, its size and colour will vary.
The kookaburra is the world’s largest kingfisher. A stocky bird with a large head, short neck and blunt tail, it is known for its distinctive ‘laughing’ call.
Each coin is struck from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
