  • Description:

    The Kangaroo is the iconic symbol of Australia and its culture. It is known for its powerful leaps, spring-like legs, and long tail for balance. The Kangaroo doesn't look like an intimidating animal but when you see it going 60 kilometers an hour, you might be forced to think otherwise. It is no wonder that the Royal Australian Mint chose the kangaroo to be the leading design on their recent bullion coin collection. The Royal Australian Mint depicts kangaroos in their natural environment to bring them to life through the coin. Along with the fantastic designs, the silver Kangaroo series also offers lower mintages than other bullion collections. In 2000, only 42,638 silver Kangaroos were minted! The silver Kangaroos' value goes beyond the market price of silver and extends to serious numismatic value. This not only draws in the experience coin collector but also those looking to start a good-quality and dependable collection.

    To bring in the new millennium, the design chosen for the reverse is of a solitary kangaroo, bouncing in action, with the outline of Australia behind it. The brilliant uncirculated coin is in the usual beautiful frosted matte finish, while the kangaroo and Australia outline have proof-like qualities. The coin's denomination of "one dollar" is written on the reverse, along with the coin's weight and purity, "one ounce fine silver." The obverse design features an older and more mature Queen Elizabeth II in her usual side angle portrait. This specific design of the Queen was inspired by the sculptor, Ian Rank-Broadley, who wanted to celebrate the Queen's aging rather than hiding it. Her face displays wrinkles and lines, with her hair short and curly. Her crown is smaller and more fitted around her head than the design before it had. The coin's place of mintage, "Australia," and the coin's year of mintage, "2000," are both inscribed encircling the Queen.
