2008 1 Dollar Kangaroo Dreaming 1oz Silver Coin
Declared Mintage: 5,797
The coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver.
The rectangular coin is the perfect shape for the Indigenous-style art portrayed on its reverse.
Created by Darryl Bellotti, an Indigenous artist of both Yamatji and Nyoongar descent, the design is inspired by his boyhood memories of a hunting trip in north-western Australia. The kangaroo is surrounded by patterns of dots, symbolising the hunters’ journey, and circles, representing the places where they stopped.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
The Kangaroo Dreaming coin is housed in a beautifully illustrated presentation pack which includes Darryl Bellotti’s signature and his evocative description of hunting in the Australian bush.
The pack incorporates a Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin is struck on a mint-to-order basis only.
