Royal Australian Mint 25th Anniversary Kangaroos - APMEX offers products from the Royal Australian Mint, which opened in 1965 as the first mint in Australia independent of the Royal Mint in London. The Royal Australian Mint also holds the distinction of minting all Australian Gold and Silver circulating coins! In addition to the circulating coinage, the Royal Australian Mint produces beautiful bullion series products and commemorative coins.
The kangaroo is the most instantly recognizable wildlife symbol of Australia. The world's largest marsupial, females carry their infants around in their pouch for two months after being born. These young kangaroos, called joeys, will stay close to their mothers until about eight months of age.
Red Kangaroos hop along on their powerful hind legs and do so at tremendous speed and with incredible grace. In fact, a red kangaroo can reach speeds of over 35 miles per hour! Their massive gait allows them to cover 25 feet in a single leap. The male kangaroos are larger than the females, and sometimes fight over potential mates by leaning back on their tails and boxing each other with their strong hind legs.
