Gilded Kangaroo Coin

Gilded Kangaroo Series

The Australian Silver Kangaroo was introduced in 1993 by the Royal Australian Mint (RAM), featuring the iconic symbol of Australia all Silver Kangaroo's have a $1 face value to them and have a silver purity of .999, and each coin weighs 31.103 grams or one ounce. The method of making these coins presented some difficulties at the mint. The gold plating was applied to the blank and the press operator had to manually align the coin to the die, otherwise the die could miss the gold plating. They were having a few teething problems but in early 2005 the mint staff indicated they were getting a guide array to help remedy this problem.
