2020 $1 1oz Fine Silver Proof Coin - Kangaroo Series - Red Kangaroo

The magnificent red kangaroo; the largest marsupial on the planet, is one of Australia’s most iconic animals. The red kangaroo is powerfully-built, elegant and beautiful; a fitting emblem of Australia’s stunning arid inland. With this 2020 $1 Fine Silver Proof Coin, the Royal Australian Mint salutes the red kangaroo: Australia’s proud desert dweller.
Red kangaroos (Macropus rufus) are found across Australia’s arid and semi-arid grasslands and plains; gathering in groups called ‘mobs’. Red kangaroos are the largest of Australia’s land mammals, with the males growing up to two metres in height. Red kangaroos can be distinguished from other species by the black and white markings on their faces. Males have a distinctive red-coloured coat, while the females have soft blue-grefur. Like all kangaroos, the young; called ‘joeys’ take refuge in their mothers’ pouches until they are grown.

Red kangaroos are one of Australia’s most widely recognised and iconic animals. They are loved for their strength and grace, and like the landscapes they inhabit, they possess a distinctive beauty.
This 2020 $1 Fine Silver Proof Coin is a stunning keepsake or gift for coin collectors, nature lovers, and anyone who treasures Australia’s iconic and respected red kangaroo.
