Since 1993, the Royal Australian Mint has released the annual Kangaroo Series to commemorate Australia’s most iconic animal.
Continuing with this tradition, the first release in the new theme of Seasons Change depicts an adult female Eastern Grey Kangaroo and her offspring on the inland plane of Australia, her preferred habitat.
As Australia’s most iconic animal, the kangaroo has captured the hearts of Australian numismatists since 1993 with the release of the Royal Australian Mint’s Kangaroo Series.
The 2016 Kangaroo Series continues this popular series with the release of a new theme that captures the exquisite and natural beauty of the kangaroo.
The reverse of this coin depicts a mother kangaroo and its offspring in the pouch of its mother. A baby kangaroo stays in the pouch of a minimum of twelve months while it develops and feeds from the teat of its mother. After twelve months, the baby kangaroo becomes too big to remain in the pouch and leaves its safety to explore its new world freely.
The Eastern Grey Kangaroo can be found across the inland plane and coastal landscape of Australia. The reverse design features a winter inland plane with gum trees and mountain ranges.
The Royal Australian Mint will release no more than 10,000 of the 2016 $1 Kangaroo Series - Seasons Change Silver Frosted Unc Coin.
