Introducing Australia’s First ‘Four Nines’ Silver Bullion Coin

Topics [ Australian Kangaroo buy silver bullion online buy silver buy silver coins ]


The Perth Mint has unveiled the much-anticipated silver version of its Australian Kangaroo, a ground-breaking bullion coin offering new and important benefits to precious metal investors.


Issued as Australian legal tender, the new coin is struck from 1oz of 99.99% (four nines) pure silver – a first for the nation’s official bullion coin program.

The coin’s reverse portrays the classic bounding red kangaroo, a design that’s been associated with Australian bullion coins since 1986. Featuring symbolic rays of Australian sunshine, the iconic depiction has a delightful fully-frosted finish.

A Perth Mint first, the coin's reverse also includes an authentication feature. In the form of a micro-laser engraved letter ‘A’ which is within the first A of AUSTRALIA, it is only detectable under a magnifying glass. The authentication feature is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited, providing peace of mind to our customers.

On top of these outstanding qualities, the 2016 1oz Australian Kangaroo silver bullion coin will represent exceptional value for money. Indeed, it will be Australia’s most economically priced silver bullion coin when it is officially released this coming 21 September 2015.

Silver investors seeking a trusted, highly economical store of wealth will be able to purchase the 2016 Australian Silver Kangaroo in protective acrylic tubes of 25 coins. Orders for 10 tubes, each sealed with a tamper evident security seal, will come with a free storage box.

Although no mintage limit applies, production of this first annual Silver Kangaroo release will close at the end of 2016 and the final number declared thereafter.
