Meticulously struck in brilliant high relief this 1oz coin features the 2016 Australian Kangaroo design.
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The coin’s reverse depicts an adult kangaroo resting on its haunches with the silhouette of another kangaroo in the background. The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the 2016 year-date.
The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 18,000 of the 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1oz High Relief Silver Proof Coin in this packaging from a maximum mintage of 20,000.
Each coin is housed in a classic Perth Mint display case within a themed shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
