The Silver Kangaroo Series from the Perth Mint made headlines with its 2016 debut as the first-ever .9999 pure silver bullion coin. While the bullion version of the Australian Silver Kangaroo maintains the same reverse design each year, its proof and gilded counterparts use a different design each year that stands apart from the bullion version.
2019 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo Gilded coins are no different in this respect. Rather than the leaping kangaroo with sunrays behind it inspired by the 1950s-era copper penny, the 2019 Silver Kangaroo Gilded Coin features a kangaroo at rest with a thin layer of 24-karat gold applied to the creature.
On that reverse side of 2019 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo Coins in this listing is a kangaroo standing on all fours. The marsupial is at rest and is not hopping along. It stands on a mound of grass with barren trees that curve with the edge of the coins design field reaching toward the moon in the sky overhead.
The gilded application on these coins includes the use of 24-karat gold. There is not enough gold in the gilded finish to alter the precious metal value of the coin, but it does serve to help the kangaroo standout from the rest of the design field visually and provides a distinctive look and feel for the release.
The obverse of 2019 Australian Silver Kangaroo Gilded Coins includes the all-new effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted here in right-profile relief in a design from Jody Clark, the man behind the fifth-generation portrait of the Queen on Royal Mint of England products. This design is the first since 1966 on Australian coins to feature the Queens neckline and shoulders, and is the sixth overall to appear on Australian currency during the Queens reign.
All 2019 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo Coins in this listing are housed in Perth Mint black clamshells. The box is sent to you inside of a Gilded Kangaroo themed shipper and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that bears its unique serial number in the series.
