2012 Kangaroo series – Mareeba Rock Wallaby $1 Silver Proof One Ounce 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.

2012 Mareeba Rock Wallaby $1 Silver Proof One Ounce Royal Australian Mint Obverse

One troy ounce of 99.9 precent silver, a huge 40 millimetre coin diameter and precious metal that is finished to a proof standard makes for another masterful creation from our dedicated team of craftsmen.
