The 2017 Australian Kangaroo Numismatic Set brings together the traditional bullion silver coin with the extremely sought-after high relief proof issue and the unusual gilded proof edition. Struck in a full ounce of the very finest quality 999/1000 pure silver, these sets have been limited to just 250 worldwide.
A little bit about each coin:
The first has been struck to the same specification of the traditional bullion coin, it features a unique frosted finish and it contrasts superbly with the reflective and raised parts of the design, giving an unusual three tone relief.
The second is The Perth Mint’s high-relief proof finish $1 coin. A remarkable technique strikes the design onto a concave blank, allowing for the engraving to stand tall - more like a sculpture than a coin.
Finally, the stunning gilded silver proof coin features the Australian kangaroo carefully picked out in brilliant 24 carat gold.
But why has the 'Kangaroo' become such an important design?
Well when the famous marsupial is engraved onto an Australian legal tender coin it becomes a hallmark of quality. Rather like the British Sovereign is a benchmark for gold coins, the Kangaroo signifies that your coin is from a trusted source and has been produced to an exceptional standard.
The ‘Kangaroo’ is one of the most prominent and internationally respected names on the market. Collectors worldwide buy these Australian coins for their quality, design and craftsmanship. And this set showcases three of the most exciting examples you can buy.
Your coins will come complete in a Deluxe Wooden Presentation Case, ready to display. Each is individually encapsulated, perfect to keep them in pristine condition for your future generations to enjoy and appreciate. It will also come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
