The Perth Mint releases an annual design featuring the kangaroo, which is the national emblem of Australia. The 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1 oz Silver Coin is the very first design in the silver kangaroo series, and the classic image of a hopping kangaroo set against a sunburst background is the perfect start to the series. The coin contains 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver, which makes it a great option for the collector of precious metals. The design of the coin, combined with the reputation of the Perth Mint for producing excellent products, makes this silver coin very collectible.
Your 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1 oz Silver Coin has been issued a grade of Mint State 70 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
The Perth Mint, which stands as the oldest operational mint in Australia today, has a well-deserved reputation for producing great pieces that are inspired by the native species of Australia. The Perth Mint introduced the Australian Kookaburra series in 1990, and has since then released a fresh Kookaburra design each year. To the delight of faithful collectors of the series. The Australian Koala series is another released by the Perth Mint and since its 2007 debut has been steadily popular.
An interesting note about the 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1 oz Silver Coins is that is it the first silver bullion coin produced by Perth Mint with .9999 pure silver. The coin also has a new engraved security feature; a very small letter A is engraved within the A of the word Australia that appears on the reverse face of the coin.
The obverse design of the 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1 oz Silver Coin features the 1998 portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by famed sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. The engravings on the coin include Her Majestys name, Elizabeth II, Australia, 1 Dollar and IRB which is a nod of the hat to the artist Rank-Broadley.
The reverse design of the 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1 oz Silver Coin features the iconic image of the kangaroo, as designed by Dr. Stuart Devlin. Devlin was a famed Australian artist and skilled metalworker who had a specialty in working with silver and gold. Also engraved on the coin include the words Australian Kangaroo, along with the year of issue, purity, weight and metal content of the coin.
Your 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1 oz Silver Coin is designated a perfect specimen, with a grade of MS70 from the NGC. Coins that are graded MS70 have no detracting flaws of any type and have their full and original luster.
