AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO SILVER BULLION COINS 

The kangaroo is the largest marsupial surviving on earth today. The animal’s distinctive style of movement, hopping on its hind legs whilst using its large, muscular tail for balance, means it is one of the only animals which is unable to move backwards easily. A recognisable symbol of Australia, the kangaroo features in the Australian national emblem alongside the emu.
