A gilded coin features a 24-karat gold layering applied to one or more of the design features. In the case of these 2017 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo coins, the gilded finish is applied to the image of the kangaroo on the coins reverse as it bounds across the Outback plains of Australia.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo is the image of the red kangaroo hopping across the Outback, with radiating lines from the background meant to depict the rays of the sun. Male kangaroos use their powerful hind legs for more than movement, as they often fight with other males over female mates by leaning back on their tails and boxing one another with their legs.
The obverse of the Australian Silver Kangaroo coin includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This particular effigy of Her Majesty is a 1998 creation by Ian Rank-Broadley, and it represents the fourth-generation portrait of the Queen to appear on commonwealth coinage since her ascension to the throne of England in 1952.
Perth Mint is located in the state of Western Australia and is a state-owned entity of the local government. Founded in 1899 as the third and final Royal Mint system under British rule, today it exists independent of the sovereign Royal Australian Mint.
