Silver Two Kilos 2019 Australian Kangaroo, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Two Kilos 2019 Australian Kangaroo

The Australian two kilos silver piece (abbreviated as 2 kg and designated with Ag for "silver") is a very large bullion 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.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This coin is part of the long-running Australian Kangaroo bullion coin series by the Perth Mint, and is a "numismatic" issue with a one-year design; it differs from the rest of the series and has a reverse only used on the 2kg silver format. It is also the first kangaroo in 2kg size.

The Mint says about it:
The kangaroo is a large marsupial endemic to Australia. Identified by its iconic pouch and hopping stride, the animal has become a much-loved national icon. This stunning 2 kilo silver coin is struck in high relief with an antiqued finish to capture the depth of detail in the reverse design, which depicts a kangaroo hopping across the Australian landscape.

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown and the Victoria Coronation necklace worn for her Coronation. This is her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide and "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, in "uncouped" version - showing the Queen's shoulders and not terminating at the neck as the normal version.

On the left, in small letters on the Queen's shoulder, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 60 DOLLARS ·.
