Heralded as Australia’s first bullion coin struck from 99.99% pure silver, the 2016 1oz Silver Kangaroo is an important addition to Australia’s suite of investment coins.

Silver Bullion – “Potential From Today’s Levels Remains Enormous”


Silver has had a rough year, slumping to major new secular lows. After sliding on balance for years now, even the diehard silver bulls are losing faith in their metal.

Despite its vexing slumber, silver’s price-appreciation potential from today’s levels remains enormous, says Mark O'Byrne. Between radical under-investment and very high speculator silver futures shorting, silver is poised to see massive buying as gold recovers.

Like all markets, silver is forever cyclical. It perpetually meanders from in favour to out of favour and back again. And after falling on balance for years as QE3 sucked capital and interest away from portfolio diversification with alternative investments, silver is way overdue to reverse into its next major bull.


The brave contrarians willing to buy silver and its miners low before this becomes widely apparent stand to earn fortunes.

Mark O'Byrne is executive director of Dublin-based GoldCore

Last Chance To Purchase 2015 Kangaroos

Topics [ Australian Kangaroo buy gold coins ]


Production of 2015 Australian Kangaroo gold bullion coins has been closed-off pending their removal from retail sale at the close-of-business on Friday 18 September.

Any investors wishing to purchase 2015 Kangaroos from The Perth Mint are now advised to act quickly. At the time of writing, just 114 1oz and 38 1/4oz Kangaroo gold bullion coins remain available for sale on perthbullion.com.

The 2015 design features an eye-catching portrayal of a kangaroo on a moonlit night. Struck from 99.99% pure gold, kangaroo designs have appeared on small coins from Australia's flagship gold bullion coin series since 1990.


The 2015-dated design has been superseded by a new depiction for 2016, which will be officially released for sale by The Perth Mint on Monday 21 September.
