2012 Kangaroo at Sunset - One Ounce Silver Proof Coin


The contemporary design of the Kangaroo at Sunset coin has made it one of the most sought-after collector pieces from the Royal Australian Mint. Reproduced on this fine silver $1 coin, the image of a lone kangaroo bounding across the plains against a setting sun is one that is truly Australian.

The reverse design was created by award-winning Mint sculptor Wojciech Pietranik and captures the spirit of Australia. The obverse features Ian Rank Broadley's effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II accompanied by the $1 denomination.

With a mintage of 5000 this coin is a must for collectors of previous releases of the silver Kangaroo at Sunset coin.
