Mintage Obverse: issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. The identical obverse designs bear the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II”, “AUSTRALIA 2008” as the issuing country and the yeardate of issue, the monetary denomination, and the weight and purity of the metal from which each coin is struck. Reverse: depicting original Australian Indigenous art, the reverse design featured on the Kangaroo Dreaming coins is inspired by the artist’s boyhood memories of a hunting trip in the north of Western Australia. The design comprises a kangaroo surrounded by patterns of dots, symbolising the hunters’ journey, and circles, representing the places where the hunters stopped.
