The Kangaroo 2013 1oz Proof

The Kangaroo From The Perth Mint’s Australian Opal Series

The Perth Mint is one of my favorite coin establishments, they are always pushing the envelope when it comes to minting eye catching coins.

This 99.9% Pure Silver 1 oz proof coin you see to your right is the Kangaroo from the Australian Opal series, which is currently one of their best selling silver coins.

It has a limited mintage of only 8000 and comes with its own display case and numbered certificate.

The design of the kangaroo itself is detailed in pure opal, which is the national gemstone of Australia, indeed 97% of the world’s opals are mined down under.
