2013 Australian Opal Series – The Kangaroo 1oz Silver Proof Coin
Australia’s most famous ambassador and number one symbol of the "Land Down under" is the kangaroo. From coins, to bank notes and even to the Australian Coat of Arms the kangaroo is there.
Depicted here in this marvelous 3rd series of Australian Opal silver coins. It brings together so many elements that are intrinsically Australian, especially with mosaic inlay of the kangaroo being made from authentic Australian opal. Surrounding the kangaroo in the border are depictions of Sturt’s Desert Pea, the Southern Cross constellation and a first crescent moon.
The series has been much applauded for its ingenuity and artistic elements. Like so many coins from Perth Mint they really are world leaders in the development of new coin design and proof quality strikes.
Together with the first 2 coins of the series they make a fantastic set and will be a great investment down the road.
The coin comes with original packaging, prestige case and Certificate of Authenticity. Certificate number may vary from that displayed.
The coin’s reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mint mark. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2013 year-date.
