Let 2020’s High Relief Kangaroo Leap Into Your Collection

One of the world’s most popular and recognizable animals is Australia’s kangaroo. This big-legged, long-eared marsupial is the largest member of the Macropus family, which literally means “big foot.” A big creature like this deserves a big coin — and that’s exactly what we have here with the mammoth coin, an addition to Australia’s popular Kangaroo series that combines High Relief designs and a shimmering Proof finish.

Struck by the master artisans at Australia’s prestigious Perth Mint in five full ounces of highly pure 99.99% silver, the coin’s reverse features a High Relief image of an adult kangaroo on a grassy plain with a baby ’roo in the background. The $8 legal-tender coin vividly represents the connection between a mother kangaroo and its young offspring. A ring around the design is engraved with the words AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO at the top and the coin’s date, weight and silver purity at the bottom. And, at more than 2 inches in diameter, every intricate detail

The coin’s remarkable high relief detail on its reverse and obverse sides was minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal was achieved when the die was struck. Plus, the gorgeous Proof finish was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields.

In fact, each 2020 Australia Five-Ounce Silver Kangaroo High Relief Proof available here has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded proofs have ZERO imperfections — showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has certified that these proofs are First Day of Issue (FDI) coins, meaning they were received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository by the release date or on the business day within 24 hours of the official release date. Each also comes sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with an exclusive Sydney Opera House label.

Just 500 of these special anniversary Kangaroos have been authorized and each one available in this offer will come housed in its original government packaging that consists of a classic display case with a clear lid and accompanied by an illustrated shipper and a mint-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
