As Australia’s most iconic animal, the kangaroo has captured the hearts of Australian numismatists since 1993 with the release of the Royal Australian Mint’s Kangaroo Series.
Throughout time, the kangaroo has been a celebrated Australian icon. A staple of artwork, photography, poetry and folklore, the uniquely-Australian marsupial has captured the imaginations of both local Australians and international visitors. Whether it gracefully bounds across the plain or potters about in nature with a joey in its pouch, the animal is almost synonymous with its native land.
