Baby kangaroos are born extremely underdeveloped, roughly the size of a jelly bean. They are blind, deaf, and hairless, and have no functioning limbs. After birth, they make their way to the mother’s pouch, where they attach themselves to one of her nipples. Inside the pouch, they spend the next several months growing and developing. By the time they’re ready to leave the pouch, they will have grown fur, developed strong hind legs, and be able to see and hear.
All of these 2023 10 oz Australian Mother & Baby Kangaroo Silver Coins are available to you with individual acrylic capsules. The coins have a much lower mintage than the 2 oz silver counterpart and all coins arrive in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
On the obverse of the 2023 Australian Mother & Baby Kangaroo Silver Coin is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This particular design is Jody Clark’s 2015 effigy and it is a memorial design as it includes the 1952-2022 date marks that honor Her Late Majesty’s 70-year reign as Queen of England.
The reverse side of 2023 10 oz Mother & Baby Kangaroo Silver Coins comes with a vision of two kangaroos. In this design, a mother kangaroo stands vigilant in left-profile relief as its young joey is standing by its side. Natural foliage fills the background field around the kangaroos and radial lines fill the horizon.
