The third release in the new Australian Opal Series, this eye-catching silver coin is dedicated to the largest marsupial living on earth today. The series with the limited mintage of 8 000 pieces of each entry depicts nocturnal Australian animals designed in pure Australian opal.
The obverse of the 2013 Kangaroo coin carries the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II surrounded by the legends indicating the Queen’s name, the name of the issuing country and the face value of the silver coin.
One can see the amazing details in the reverse design featuring a kangaroo in pure Australian opal against the background of Sturts Desert Pea leaves and blossoms and a first crescent moon and the Southern Cross, a constellation visible only in the Southern hemisphere. Endemic to Australia and known as the unofficial symbol of this country, kangaroos are mainly nocturnal animals doing most of their feeding in the evening or at night. This 1oz .999 pure silver proof coin comes in a beautiful display case with the light turning on when you open it, to realistically represent the moon shining down on the animal.
