2013 Kangaroo Carded $1 Silver Frosted Uncirculated Coin RAM silver Australia


Kangaroo Series - Explorers' First Sightings
Stubbs' portrait is one of the first non-indigenous artist impressions of the kangaroo. Botanist Joseph Banks brought a specimen of the unusual creature back to England after the HMS Endeavour’s first Pacific voyage, and commissioned Stubbs to paint its likeness.
 
The kangaroo has remained an object of fascination to all visitors to Australia, and has become synonymous with our great land.

These coins, bearing the iconic Stubbs' portrait, will be available in three varieties. Given the popularity of this series, you need to be quick to secure them for your collection! As the $10 gold proof mintage is only 1500, there is a limit of two per customer.
