Today I filled the last gap in my collection of Royal Australian Mint 1oz .999 silver Kangaroos! With a face value of 1 Dollar in every shape and form, there has been a new design on the reverse of the coin each year since 1993, with representations of the creature spanning Australian history from its appearance in Aboriginal art to its first sightings by early explorers. The last set within the series were the four year run of “Seasons’ Change“ coins between 2016-2019.

The RAM seems to have overlapped these with it’s last two Kangaroo coins, the 2019 and 2020 Mob of Roos which is a bit weird- was the 2019 Seasons Change coin the last of the series proper? Anyway I’ve got the Mobs too.

In case you were wondering the last coin was the 2013 20th Anniversary- bought for a smidge over ¬£70. The cheapest were the 1996, ‚Äė97 and ‚Äė98 coins bought as a job lot for just under ¬£70 (including postage from Australia!) and the most expensive was the 2016 Seasons¬†Change for ¬£102.¬†

Just need a new set to look out for now.

Very well done. I bet it's rewarding. Any chance of some pictures of the collection? A couple of my all time favourites happen to be 'roos.
