The red kangaroo is the largest terrestrial mammal native to the Australian continent, and it is the largest extant marsupial found on the continent as well. Though it can be found across the mainland, it is rarely if ever found in the south, east coast, and northern rainforest regions.
The obverse of the Australian Silver Kangaroo coin features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty appears on all Australian coinage, bullion and circulation alike. Throughout her reign, Queen Elizabeth IIs portrait is updated to reflect her age. This is the fourth-generation depiction created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
Perth Mint has set an unlimited mintage figure for the 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo. This means the coins will be struck to meet demand from investors through the end of its year of issue, which means the end of the 2018 calendar year.
