The obverse of 2022 Proof Royal Australian Silver Kangaroo Coins features a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. The latest effigy of the Queen to grace Australian coinage, this image shows Elizabeth II in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown. Adapted from Jody Clark’s 2015 design for the Royal Mint of England, this design is the first on an Australian coin since the 1960s to feature the Queen’s shoulders within the design element.
On the reverse side of 2022 1/2 oz Proof Silver Kangaroo Coins is an image of a bounding kangaroo. This beautiful design shows a kangaroo bounding along through tall grass, with stylized lines behind its frame capturing its trail of bounces as it moves along. The coin’s weight, purity, and metal content are noted on this side of the coin.
Kangaroos are indigenous to Australia, as well as New Guinea, and are often associated with the nation of Australia. In fact, kangaroos are the national symbol of Australia and feature on its coat of arms.
