2020 $1 Gilded Kangaroo 1oz Silver Coin
The flagship ssue of the Perth Mint during their renaissance at the end of the 1980's, the Kangaroo family of coins gained a 1oz silver addition, just a few years ago. And today, the annual release of a special gold-plated edition of that coin is extremely popular!
Struck from an ounce of 99.99% pure silver, and featuring a majestic, Outback design of Australia's animal emblem, each 40.9mm precious metal collectable is also carefully plated in 24-carat gold.
Importantly, though many of the Mint's Kangaroo coins bear mintages well into the millions, this version, created especially for collectors, is limited to just 5,000. That is a tiny number when you factor in local collectors... but once you include the rest of the world - all of whom have a hunger for Australian wildlife motifs - that is akin to the proverbial three fifths of... well, you know the rest.
