The Australian Silver Kookaburra is an elegant and beautiful .9999 fine silver bullion coin produced by the Perth Mint of Australia featuring the famous native bird.

General Details

The Silver Australian Kookaburra is a silver bullion coin originating from Australia, and produced at the Perth Mint starting in 1990. The coins have always been minted in .999 fine silver; that is until the 2018, when the Perth Mint increased in purity to .9999 fine silver. While the obverse of the coin always depicts Queen Elizabeth II, the reverse side changes every year, always featuring a kookaburra, a bird native to and famous within Australia. With yearly design change and limited production of the one ounce coins, their value is a higher collectible value than some other bullion coins. The Perth Mint often distributes the coins in individual plastic capsules or in in shrink wrap rolls of 20, with 5 rolls in each box of 100. The Perth Mint also regularly releases certain special editions of the Silver Australian Kookaburra such as proof, high relief, privy marked, colored, and gilded versions which are sold at a premium price. Each of coin contains 1 troy ounce of 0.9999 pure silver. At time of issue they are assigned $1 (AUD) face values as well — indicating the full backing of the Australian government.

These coins are consistently discussed for the beauty of this exquisitely modeled coin, making them popular with investors and coin collectors alike. The Silver Kookaburra coins are issued in limited runs, often giving them greater value than other coins of the same weight. Various years of the coin are available, though orders tend to be fulfilled with the most recent year of issue. The Perth Mint offers a range of coins with designs inspired by the Australian wildlife, including the Kangaroo and Platypus — of which the Kookaburra remains extremely popular. The laughing kookaburra is one of the most popular Australian birds.
