One of the most significant silver bullion coins in the world today is the Australian Silver Kangaroo. Introduced in 2016 as a BU silver series, this coin was the first annual-release coin from the Perth Mint to feature .9999 pure silver. In a curious twist, the Silver Kangaroo does not feature changing reverse designs each year like the Kookaburra or Koala, or even its gold counterpart, but rather, uses the same design each year. Now, 2024 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo Coins with an all-new bust of His Majesty King Charles III are available for purchase online at JM Bullion.

The Australian Silver Kangaroo’s reverse design is inspired by a historic copper penny from Australia’s past. The kangaroo design first appeared on Australian pennies in 1938 and continued until 1964. The kangaroo design was introduced to replace the existing design featuring a merino ram. The decision to feature the kangaroo was influenced by its iconic status as a symbol of Australia.
In 2024, the 1 oz Silver Kangaroo becomes one of the last major bullion coins at Perth Mint to feature the first-ever bust of His Majesty King Charles III on its obverse. The new portrait of the king was created by Daniel Thorne.
For the obverse of the 2024 1 oz Silver Kangaroo Coin, you will find this all-new portrait of His Majesty. Charles III is shown in left-profile relief wearing a suit and is depicted without a crown on his head. The lack of a crown is common in currency portraits of male monarchs, and his left-profile relief carries on the tradition of alternating the orientation of monarch portraits following his mother’s right-profile portraits throughout her reign.
In the reverse design of 2024 Australian Silver Kangaroos, the mint features the image of a kangaroo. The marsupial is shown in left-profile relief leaping across the design field with stylized sun rays filling the background element.
These 2024 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are individually packaged in plastic flips. Multiples come in either acrylic tubes of 25 coins or Monster Boxes of 250 coins, with a total of 10 tubes in the box.
