Australian Silver Kangaroos - The popular Australian Silver Kangaroo was introduced in 1993. Since then, thousands of collectors worldwide have been accumulating these desirable coins. Minted by the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra, Australia, the Australian Silver Kangaroo coins are legal Australian tender. Each single coin has a face value of one Australian dollar. With a limited mintage annually, the Silver Kangaroo coins attract collectors and investors for their limited number and changing designs.
Although the coin's design changes almost annually, the same basic features of the coin have remained the same since its introduction. The obverse of the coin depicts Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse features a world recognized symbol of Australia: the kangaroo. The Australian Silver Kangaroo coin is issued in two forms: a Proof coin and a frosted coin. Since 2003, the Royal Australian Mint has also issued coins with Gold plating.
The Australian Kangaroos vary in design and are changed each year. We typically only carry large quantities of the current year, since backdated coins are very difficult to find. APMEX makes it easy to buy Silver by offering competitive Silver prices on all Silver products.
