Outback Majesty (Kangaroos Series) - 2021 1oz Silver Proof
The title Outback Majesty evokes images of Australia’s arid centre, the epic Never Never and its undisputed king - the ubiquitous kangaroo. The Royal Australian Mint has stunningly immortalised both of these Australian icons on this shimmering 2021 $1 Fine Silver Proof Coin. Packed in RAM's new paper pulp case, this case is lighter and made from Bamboo and Bagasse, meaning that this material is both durable and sustainable, helping to reduce our environmental impact for future generations.
The designer was given an open brief to create a coin that celebrates the iconic kangaroo as the majestic king of the outback. The expansive and arid beauty of Australia’s red centre and the ever-present sun are stunningly represented in the design with strong geometric shapes that are rich with textural detail. While the noble kangaroo, in mid bound takes its rightful place in the centre on the coin. Each muscle and nuanced angle lovingly rendered in elegant shallow relief. Now in its twenty-eighth year, the Royal Australian Mint’s Kangaroo Series continues to highlight our dedication to excellence in all the numismatic crafts and the unique beauty of the Australia’s most iconic marsupial.
