In 2010 the Royal Australian Mint released the first of the $1 silver proof coins featuring a lone kangaroo against the backdrop of a setting sun. This is one of the most internationally recognised and highly acclaimed coin designs by world renowned sculptor Wojciech Pietranik produced by the Royal Australian Mint. The reverse design captures the spirit of a quintessentially Australian icon the Kangaroo. The obverse features Ian Rank Broadley’s effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, unusually accompanied by the coin’s $1 denomination. The coin is produced in over 6 grams of fine silver and handsomely housed in a black wooden case which highlights the stunning proof finish when opened for viewing. Themed outer packaging adds the perfect finishing touch.
