Female kangaroos have front-opening pouches in which to carry their young or joeys. A joey usually stays in the pouch for approximately nine months, leaving the pouch for longer intervals until grown. Kangaroos live in all areas of Australia, from cold climate regions and desert plains, to tropical rainforests, coastal lands and semi-rural areas.

The coin's reverse depicts a kangaroo set against a coloured outback scene incorporating wild spring grasses and Australian boab trees. The inscriptions DISCOVER AUSTRALIA and KANGAROO, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the 2013 year-date are also included in the design.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of each 2013 Discover Australia 1oz silver proof coin, with an issue limit of 3,500 for each individual coin and 1,500 for the five-coin set.
