Why purchase this 1 oz Silver 2020-P $1 Australia Kangaroo?
When most people think of Australia, the kangaroo is at or near the top of the list of things that come to mind. It seemed odd, then, that the country only issued Koala and Kookaburra silver bullion coins. That changed in 2016, though, when the Silver Kangaroo made its debut as the first Australian .9999 fine silver coin. Its older cousins, Koalas and Kookaburras, have since been issued in that same purity. This 2020 Silver Kangaroo brings the new series into its fifth year. It w as struck on a 1 oz planchet at the Perth Mint and bears that mint's iconic "P" mint mark on the reverse.
Exquisite Red Kangaroo Design by Stuart Devlin
The obverse features a right-side portrait of reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II. The work of by Royal Mint designer, the image shows her majesty down to her shoulders, which are open to the holder. She wears her Royal Diamond Diadem, the same crown that she traditionally wears to the State Opening of Parliament in Westminster. Inscriptions on the patterned rim frame include her name, "ELIZABETH II," the name of the coin's country, "AUSTRALIA," and its face value, "1 DOLLAR."
The reverse features a kangaroo in left-side profile. The work of Stuart Devlin shows the animal in mid-jump, providing a great look at its long, powerful legs and feet. It is set against a sunburst backdrop that is not Devlin's work. Along the rim are inscriptions that offer the coin's name, "AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO," its date, "2020," its weight, "1 OZ," and its purity, "9999 SILVER."
