The silver kangaroo coin has been produced since 1993 by The Royal Australian Mint. Annual mintage numbers are quite small never exceeding 20000 oz per annum. Each coin is 1 troy oz or 31.1 grams of pure silver. The silver kangaroo coin is one of the only 1oz bullion coins to change its design every year featuring kangaroos in different poses and settings.
The most well known gold bullion coin is the South African Krugerrand. It is the most widely owned gold bullion coin in the world, with over 46 million ounces currently in circulation. The coin became so popular that in 1980, it accounted for 90% of the gold bullion coin market.
