Silver Ounce 2018 Australian Kangaroo, Bullion, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2018 Australian Kangaroo, Bullion

The Australian one ounce silver piece (abbreviated as 1 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion and commemorative coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

The Australian Silver Kangaroo series was introduced in 1993 by the Royal Australian Mint; subsequently, the Perth Mint also started issuing Kangaroo bullion coins. The coins have legal tender status in Australia and are one of few legal tender bullion silver coins to change their design every year. This and their limited annual mintage may, unlike for many other bullion coins, raise their numismatic value over the value of silver used.

The Mint says about it:
No wildlife symbol more powerfully equates with Australia than our beloved kangaroo. In 2018, the marsupial famed for the way it bounds on elongated hind legs, is portrayed on Australian Kangaroo silver bullion coins by a representation of Stuart Devlin’s classic "red kangaroo" design. Larger than eastern and western greys, the red kangaroo is Australia’s largest native mammal. Superbly adapted to arid environments, it lives throughout central regions of the continent.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2018 Australian Kangaroo, Bullion - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 1 DOLLAR ·.

The Queen's portrait is on a lightly frosted background. The rim is finely textured in thin concentric wavy lines.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 1 DOLLAR ·
