  • Description:

    The 1997 reverse design of the silver Kangaroo catches the eye of any collector interested in fabulous detail and workmanship. A solitary kangaroo is enjoying a local watering hole as its thirsty reflection stars back at him. The kangaroo is hunched over, standing beside the rippling waves, unimpressed by the kangaroo staring up at him. This coin has a matte finish while the kangaroo has proof-like qualities. "1 ounce fine silver" is written to the left hand side of the kangaroo and "one dollar" is shown at the bottom of the coin since its legal tender value is one dollar. The obverse contains a young and vibrant Queen Elizabeth II, a side view many artists have tried to create to get their names noticed. This particular portrait was designed by a sculptor named, Raphael Maklouf, who aspired to keep the Queen youthful. Her Majesty is wearing an elegant crown on her head, with a slight smirk on her lips. Along with her name, "Australia", and "1997" are also inscribed around her to show where the coin was minted and which year it was minted in.

    The Royal Australian Mint began the silver Kangaroo series in 1993, to kick-start a bullion coin collection that was the equivalent of legal tender. In fact, the silver Kangaroo collection is one of the only legal tender collections to have its reverse design changed year to year. This alludes to higher numismatic value among coin collectors, who fervently search for every year to fulfill their compilation. Along with changing the design, the mintage also changes every year. 72,850 silver Kangaroos were minted in 1997 and their popularity keeps increasing! These silver coins are one troy ounce of pure silver, in brilliant uncirculated condition, and come in a mint sealed capsule for protection.
