The Perth Mint is now taking orders for its 2016 Australian Kangaroo Four-Coin Silver Proof Set, which is available for $199.09 AUD ($152.90 USD) and has a product limit of 3,000 units.
The set includes four 99.99% Silver Kangaroo pieces that weigh one-ounce, 1/2-ounce, 1/4-ounce, and 1/10-ounce, respectively. The 1/4-ounce piece is the first Silver Proof Kangaroo of that size ever produced by the Mint.
The obverse design for all four coins carries Ian Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, with ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 50 CENTS inscribed along the rim.
The reverse features Stuart Devlin’s classic Kangaroo motif surrounded by a stylized sunburst pattern. Inscribed on this side of the coins are AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO, 2016, 9999 SILVER, the weight, and the Perth Mint’s “P” mint mark.
The Mint has also announced a special addition to be included with the first 250 orders of this set. In addition to the four coins, early purchasers will receive a gold-plated silver kangaroo pin with opal.
This limited edition set is also accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity. For more information on the 2016 Australian Kangaroo Four-Coin Silver Proof Set, please visit the Web site of the Perth Mint.
