2017 $1 1oz Fine Silver Frosted Unc Coin - Kangaroo Series - Seasons Change
The latest instalment in the enduring Kangaroo Series pays tribute to the life cycle of an Eastern Grey Kangaroo. Following the 2016 winter-themed coin, this fine silver piece features a joey and its mother grazing on nature’s springtime bloom. Coin collectors, fans of Australian wildlife and gift buyers will cherish this beautiful collectible piece. This coin, in fine silver and with a frosted uncirculated finish, captures these precious spring moments to illustrate the life of this iconic animal.
HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE
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.
Kangaroos have also been a staple of Australian coin designs, featuring on the penny from 1937 until the introduction of decimal currency, and on the one dollar coin since its introduction in 1984. Since 1993, the Royal Australian Mint has produced annual releases in the beloved Kangaroo Series, celebrating many different aspects of their place in our nation’s conscience. The Seasons Change theme was launched in 2016 with four annual coins to be released showing a joey’s growth and development throughout the four seasons of the year.
