Perth Mint announces a Proof version of the Silver Kangaroo
Following on from the incredible success of the bullion coin, The Perth Mint has just announced a brand new Silver Kangaroo Proof Set, comprising four coins – the 1 ounce, 1/2 ounce, 1/4 ounce and 1/10 ounce.
It is the first ever Silver Kangaroo Set, first ever silver fractional set from Perth and the first time they have ever issued a 1/4oz silver coin.
Despite this collection of firsts and the undoubted demand for the set following the huge popularity of the bullion coin, the edition limit has been set at just 3,000.
