Silver Ounce 2019 Mob of Roos, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2019 Mob of Roos

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. 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.

Silver Kangaroo coins are usually issued in two forms: a proof coin and a frosted uncirculated coin, although coins with selective gold plating have also been issued from 2003.

Note that there is another Kangaroo series unrelated to this one, issued by the Perth Mint.

This Australian Kangaroo one-ounce silver bullion coin depicts a mob of five kangaroos (in Australian: "roos") - the iconic image by Stuart Devlin which has been the definitive design of the Australian $1 coin since it was introduced in 1984. This is the first time when the design was used on a bullion coin.

The coins are issued in Brilliant Uncirculated grade.

Crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (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 2019.

Five kangaroos (hence the coin type is known as the "Mob of Roos"), the closest facing right but looking to left.

Below, and superimposed on them, the denomination and value 1 DOLLAR.

There is a variety of privy marks, found beneath the right-most kangaroo and above the letter A of DOLLAR; these are described in the "varieties" section below (it seems that there was no version of the coin without a privy mark).

Notes

The coin design, and the privy marks, were approved by a number of separate acts compiled in Currency (Australian Coins) Determination 2019.
