Weaved into Australian folklore is the story of how Kangaroos got their name: from a misunderstanding among explorers.
Upon first seeing the marsupial, a European explorer asked a native Aborigine what the animal was called. The native replied “kangaroo” — which means “I don’t know.” The explorers assumed that was the animal’s name, and it has lived on ever since.
Don’t misunderstand us when we say these 2014 Royal Australian Mint 1 Oz Silver Proof Kangaroos are the ideal asset for investors and collectors alike.Each silver coin is composed of one ounce of .999 fine silver, and is now available at Provident Metals.
Each mirror-like reverse features two grazing kangaroos in the Outback. Henry Constantine Richter designed the image for the Explorers’ First Sighting publication, and wildlife author John Gould sketched the marsupials on each coin. Inscriptions include ONE DOLLAR and 1 OUNCE FINE SILVER.
The reverse features a right-facing Queen Elizabeth II and is inscribed with the words AUSTRALIA 2014 and ELIZABETH II.
The kangaroo has grown in popularity in Australia and is known as the country’s unofficial symbol. It appears on the Coat of Arms, currency and other organizational logos.
