Australia's Perth Mint is to coins what Switzerland is to fine watches: an unquestioned world leader. What's their secret? Combining 21st century digital design and manufacturing technology to produce the highest quality collectible coins in the world. Bar none.
Australia's oldest operating Mint was originally established as a branch of Britain's Royal Mint in 1899 – and is now recognized internationally for their production of innovative precious metal coinage of the highest quality. Today, the Perth Mint specializes in minting in both proof and uncirculated coinage, producing annual releases in gold, silver, platinum and palladium. In 2012, the Perth Mint even won a Guinness World Record for minting a ONE-TON Australian Kangaroo Gold coin.
Australia's latest silver coins showcase the nation's iconic wildlife in their natural surroundings, including the renowned 99.9% pure silver Kangaroo, Kookaburra and Koala coins, ranging in size from one oz. to 10 kilograms. New for 2016, the Perth Mint has released a first-ever 99.99% pure silver one oz. Brilliant Uncirculated Kangaroo, featuring the classic design featured on the Australian Kangaroo gold kilo release for more than two decades.
Each silver coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and depicts Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse – created by Ian Rank-Broadley and officially approved by the Queen herself.
