Silver Ounce 2018 Kangaroo - Seasons Change, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2018 Kangaroo - Seasons Change

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.

This coin is the third issue in the Seasons Change series by the Royal Australian Mint, and depicts the Summer part in the cycle.

Issued from 2016 to 2019, the four-coin series documents an Eastern Grey Kangaroo growing throughout the seasons. The 2016 features a joey staying warm in her mother’s pouch in winter. Her spring months are depicted on the 2017 coin. In 2018, the grown animal is seen finding shade among the trees. In 2019 the silver coin with frosted finish depicts a grown kangaroo with her own joey, as a sentimental conclusion to the story.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2018 Kangaroo - Seasons Change - obverse photo

The obverse 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 date: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2018.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2018
Reverse
