New Gold and Silver Coins from the Royal Australian Mint 

The Royal Australian Mint continues to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its Kangaroo Series, today unveiling two new coins in the popular series.

The latest additions, a 2018 $100 Gold Proof Coin and a 2018 $10 Fine Silver Selectively Gold Plated Proof Coin, incorporate and reimagine designs from a selection of the Mint’s past Kangaroo Series coins, released annually since 1993.

The 2018 Gold Proof Coin is struck from one ounce of opulent gold and the 2018 Fine Silver Selectively Gold Plated Proof Coin is made from five ounces of fine silver with selective gold plating.

Royal Australian Mint CEO Ross MacDiarmid said the new coins are an example of the Mint’s artistic excellence.

“To celebrate 25 years of the Kangaroo Series, the Mint is proud to release two coins that reflect on some of the series’ past incarnations, while also taking our craftsmanship to the next level through detailed, intricate designs.

“This series is one of our most popular annual releases, loved by collectors both in Australia and overseas. These new gold and silver proof coins are wonderful additions to the enduring Kangaroo Series on its 25th anniversary,” he said.

The 2018 $100 Gold Proof Coin is made from 99.99 per cent gold and is limited to a mintage of only 750. The 2018 $10 Fine Silver Selectively Gold Plated Proof Coin is made from 99.9 per cent silver and is limited to a mintage of 1993.

Both releases are issued as Australian legal tender and feature the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2018 year-date on the coin’s obverse.

The 2018 $100 1oz Gold Proof Coin and the 2018 $10 5oz Fine Silver Selectively Gold Plated Proof Coin are available now from the Royal Australian Mint: www.eshop.ramint.gov.au. For international sales please contact info@ramint.gov.au.
