The Australian Silver Kangaroo is a one troy ounce silver bullion coin minted by the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra, Australia. They have legal tender status in Australia and are one of few legal tender bullion silver coins to change their design every year. This and their limited annual mintage may, unlike for many other bullion coins, raise their numismatic value over the value of silver used.

The Silver Kangaroo series was introduced in 1993[1] by the Royal Australian Mint, an agency wholly owned and run by the Commonwealth Government of Australia. Silver Kangaroo coins are usually issued in two forms: a proof coin and a frosted uncirculated coin, although coins with selective gold plating have also been issued from 2003.
