Next Generation Series coins display both a mother and baby of iconic wildlife in the Australian Outback. The first issue in the series showcased a pair of koalas, then crocodiles, kookaburras, platypus, dingos and now kangaroos in this very popular series. Each Next Generation coin features micro-engraved radial lines for enhanced aesthetics and security.
The coin's reverse depicts a kangaroo with its baby. The design also includes radial lines and The Perth Mint's "P" mintmark. The obverse features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with inscriptions ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 2oz, 9999 Ag, 1952 - 2022 and 2 DOLLARS.
The coins weigh two-ounces, struck as a piedfort. The word may be new to many, but piedforts have been struck for over half a millennium. During the Middle Ages, France and Great Britain minted coins of double thickness and weight for presentation purposes. The word "piedfort" literally translates to "heavy foot" in French; it alludes the coin's extra weight and metal content. While piedforts have existed for years, this is the first time the Perth Mint has issued a silver bullion coin in this special format.
