2012 Australian Kangaroo Mareeba Wallaby Silver Proof Coin
Presenting Royal Australian Mint's latest Kangaroo silver proof coin featuring the Mareeba Rock- Wallaby!
- Fine silver proof coin
This wallaby can be found in rocky habitats embedded within open forests throughout the North Queensland region. It wasn't until 1992 that these marsupials were declared a separate species to other wallabies after extensive research discovered a distinction in their distribution and shape of their chromosomes.
One troy ounce of 99.9% silver, a huge 40mm coin diameter and precious metal that is finished to a proof standard makes for another masterful creation by Royal Australian Mint.
