The magnificent red kangaroo; the largest marsupial on the planet, is one of
Australia’s most iconic animals. The red kangaroo is powerfully-built, elegant
and beautiful; a fitting emblem of Australia’s stunning arid inland. With this
2020 $1 Fine Silver Proof Coin, the Royal Australian Mint salutes the red
kangaroo: Australia’s proud desert dweller.
Red kangaroos (Macropus rufus) are found across Australia’s arid and semi-arid
grasslands and plains; gathering in groups called ‘mobs’. Red kangaroos are the
largest of Australia’s land mammals, with the males growing up to two metres
in height. Red kangaroos can be distinguished from other species by the black
and white markings on their faces. Males have a distinctive red-coloured coat,
while the females have soft blue-grefur. Like all kangaroos, the young; called
‘joeys’ take refuge in their mothers’ pouches until they are grown.
Red kangaroos are one of Australia’s most widely recognised and iconic
animals. They are loved for their strength and grace, and like the
landscapes they inhabit, they possess a distinctive beauty.
This 2020 $1 Fine Silver Proof Coin is a stunning keepsake or gift for coin
collectors, nature lovers, and anyone who treasures Australia’s iconic and
respected red kangaroo.
