The Seasons Change collection comes to a sentimental conclusion with this autumn-themed coin. Collectors, who have watched the Eastern Grey Kangaroo grow and develop throughout the previous coins in the series, can now own the heart-warming scene of a fully grown kangaroo with a joey of her own.
Since its launch in 1993, the annual Kangaroo Series has been one of the Royal Australian Mint’s most popular and enduring series. Using creative design, modern minting techniques and precious metals, it has been a celebration of the significance of this uniquely Australian marsupial.
Over these years, the coins have celebrated the kangaroo’s presence in art, history and culture, with each release showing a new perspective of the nation’s special affinity with the animal.
The 2016 coin, set during winter, featured a joey staying warm in her mother’s pouch. The spring months were depicted on the 2017 coin, seeing the young kangaroo grazing among the spring bloom with her mother. In 2018, the grown animal was seen finding shade among the trees, waiting to see what the cycle of nature would have in store in the months ahead.
