In the minds of most people in the world the kangaroo is the one thing that they immediately associate with Australia so that a silver one should be the star of one of the Perth Mint’s flagship silver coins only makes sense.
The Perth Mint’s Australian Silver Kangaroo features the standard Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and a lively, jumping kangaroo on the reverse. The coin also features a special new security feature. A small, engraved letter ‘A’ (for Australia) has been added to ‘Australian’ in the coin’s title stamp but it can only be seen under magnification, making it very hard for forgers to replicate.
The coin boasts 1 oz. of .9999 pure silver.
Gold and silver are the only assets that are not simultaneously someone else’s liability.
