New Issue: Perth Mint unveils one-ounce silver Kangaroo bars

Earlier this month, Australia’s Perth Mint introduced a new bullion series featuring one-ounce silver Kangaroo bars.

This silver bullion bars feature a struck version of the mint’s LBMA registered mark on a table of radiating circles. Included on the front is the inscription “9999 FINE SILVER,” which incorporates a tiny “P” mintmark within the last nine. This authentication feature is designed to make counterfeiting more difficult.

Like the mint’s gold bars, the reverse features kangaroo-shaped motifs incused on the back.


Each one-ounce is presented inside a lighthouse plastic pouch. The bars are also available to purchase in acrylic tubes of 15 bars or in a package of 10 tubes boxed in durable card packaging. To purchase in multiples of 15, click here.
