Australian Kangaroo Silver Coins at Provident Metals

One of the most popular coin programs from the Perth Mint is the Australian Kangaroo Silver Coin series. This series of coinage was the first of the Perth Mint’s annual silver bullion programs to have a purity of .9999 silver. These coins paved the way for others to make the switch to .9999 pure silver.  Unlike most of the Perth Mint’s annual series as well, this collection features the same image of a kangaroo on every release. Learn more about these Australian Kangaroo Silver Coins, right here at Provident Metals.

Design of the BU Australian Kangaroo Silver Coins

The Australian Kangaroo Silver Coin program displays the same image of the kangaroo on every release. The design showcases a red kangaroo leaping through the outback with a sunburst background. This design is based on the 1938 design for the Australian copper penny. This image is seen on the reverse while the obverse showcases the reigning British monarch at the time. In 2024, King Charles III will be featured, marking the first time someone other than Queen Elizabeth II has been shown on the obverse. Designs over the years have featured the following:

  • 2015-2018: Ian Rank-Broadley’s depiction of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • 2019-2023: Jody Clark’s rendition of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • 2024-Present: Dan Thorne’s portrait of King Charles III.

Other Strikes of the Australian Kangaroo Silver Coins

These coins are also released in proof, gilded, and colorized versions. These coins feature unique images of the kangaroo, unlike the BU design. These coins are also available in bigger sizes such as 2 oz and 5 oz.

The image of this kangaroo can also be seen on several Silver Bars from the Perth Mint as well, mainly their minted ingots. These minted ingots feature a repeating pattern of the kangaroo on the reverse of the bar.
