          Very nice details on both sides. Although the face value of $1 may not seem like much, silver is currently near $19 per oz (US).

                I have a photo of kangaroos that closely resembles the coin's design taken on a trip to Australia decades ago. I'll certainly consider more coins from this mint.

                      Great Coin with excellent detail and showing an iconic Australian animal. Exquisitely done and storage case is very nice. Nice to have coins from other countries and the presentation and workmanship is excellent.
