The kangaroo is the largest marsupial surviving on earth today. The animal’s distinctive style of movement, hopping on its hind legs whilst using its large, muscular tail for balance, means it is one of the only animals which is unable to move backwards easily. An unofficial symbol of Australia, the kangaroo features in the Australian national emblem alongside the emu.
The coin's reverse depicts an adult kangaroo bounding across an Australian landscape at dusk, with the moon and trees in the background.
The coin is housed in a presentation case and custom-designed shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
