There is no animal more synonymous with the continent of Australia than the kangaroo.

The 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1/4 oz Silver Coin Proof is offered in a brilliant proof striking that features a deeply-mirrored background with frosted design sets to provide interesting contrast on the coin. The coin has a face value of $0.25 and is fully backed by the Australian government. The coin contains Troy oz of .9999 pure silver. Its a great introductory coin to start your collection.

Of the 13,000 coins that were issued for production in this release, only 10,000 of the 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1/4 oz Silver Coin Proofs will be allotted for individual purchase. The remaining coins are reserves for a four-coin set that also includes 1 oz, oz, and 1/10 oz coin.

Your 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1/4 oz Silver Coin Proof will ship in a themed shipper that has the name of the coin series, the kangaroo design and the year of issue. Included with the coin is a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.


The obverse design of the 2016 Australian Kangaroo 1/4 oz Silver Coin features the 1998 right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, Her Majestys image is accompanied by engravings identifying the Queen, nation of issue, and face value of the coin.


The reverse side of each of the 2016 Proof Australian Kangaroo 1/4 oz Silver Coin depicts the image of a hopping kangaroo. The stylized background represents the rising sun in the distance, with its rays of light stretching to the very edges of the coins design field.

The kangaroo is the worlds largest marsupial species, with four recognized subspecies of kangaroo found on the Australian continent. It is loosely related to other marsupials, including Australias wallaby and koala.
