Australian
1 oz. Silver Kangaroo
Bullion Coin







In 2015, The Perth Mint released a limited edition version of the Australian 1oz. Silver Kangaroo Bullion Coin.

The 2015 bullion coin had a slightly different design and it had a silver purity of .999.  ('Click here' to read more about the 2015 Silver Kangaroo, or scroll down the page.)

Then in 2016, The Perth Mint started the production of the unlimited mintage version of the Australian 1 oz. Silver Kangaroo Bullion Coin and it was made with a purity of .9999 silver.

The reverse side pays tribute to Australia's most recognizable and largest native terrestrial mammal; the Red Kangaroo.

The design of the silver bullion coin's reverse captures the mighty Red Kangaroo in their distinct bounding movement, inside the rays of the sun.

Since 1991, the same design has been depicted on the reverse side of the Australian 1-kilo. Gold Kangaroo bullion coin.


The 1oz. Silver Kangaroo bullion coin has become a favorite among investors and collectors alike.

The Perth Mint offers the bullion coin with an unlimited production mintage, unlike its other silver bullion coins that have limited mintages of under 1-million.

In its first year of production, The Perth Mint sold over 10-million Silver Kangaroo bullion coins.

Silver Australian Kangaroo
Security 'Authentication' Feature



silver kangaroo - security feature

The Perth Mint has added a new Security Authentication Feature to the Silver Kangaroo coin’s reverse side in the form of a micro-laser engraved "A" found within one of the "A's" in the coin’s AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO heading. 

The letter can be detectable under a magnifying glass.

Australian Kangaroo Heading

Note: 

In 2016, it was specifically stated that the 'micro-laser engraved' 'A' would only be found in first 'A' of AUSTRALIAN.

In 2017, the Perth Mint mint stated that the 'A' would be found in the third 'A' in AUSTRALIAN.

Click here and here to see examples of the 2017's 'A' placement in 'AUSTRALIAN.'

For 2018, the Perth Mint's Marketing brochure states that the 'A' can be found "within the coin's AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO heading;" no specific 'A' was specified.







The 2015 Silver Kangaroo
Bullion Coin




In 2016, after the introduction of the 'New' Australian Kangaroo Silver Bullion coin hit the market, a coin collector started reading post's in different coin forums that a 2015 version of the coin had been previously released.

'CoinWeek' investigated the matter and wrote the following about the coins:

"It turns out that the 2015 issue was produced at the initiative of eBay and Bay Precious Metals (BPM), a division of Coins ‘N’ Things, a U.S. Mint-Authorized Purchaser and the largest supplier of precious metal planchets to the United States Mint.

In addition, only 300,000 of the 2015-dated kangaroos were minted by Perth on BPM’s behalf and, perhaps most interestingly, the coins were held back from sale by BPM since last year and were offered only this past May exclusively on eBay, with the first sales recorded on May 10.

As for the physical differences between the 2015 and 2016 issues, the 2015 coins have a silver purity of three nines rather than four and they have a different finish (frosted or matte rather than brilliant). There are also design elements–small wavy lines that circle around the outer edge of the design are present on both the obverse and reverse of the 2016 coin–that do not appear on the 2015 issue. Instead, the relevant area is blank and frosted."
