Why order this $8 Australian 2017 5 oz High Relief Silver Kookaburra Proof?

This High Relief 2017 $8 Australian 5 oz Silver Kookaburra Proof would take pride of place in just about any collection. It is the latest issue in the extremely popular Kookaburra series, which features a unique reverse design every year. Both faces of this coin are concave. This piece bears the famed "P" mint mark of the Perth Mint where it was struck from .999 fine silver. It is part of a mintage of just 1,000 pieces.

Stunning Kookaburras Design Natasha Muhl

The obverse design, a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a tiara by Ian Rank-Broadley, has long appeared on Australian coinage. Even so, the concave obverse and high relief execution of the design serve to accentuate details that might otherwise be overlooked. The queen's name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed along the rim, as are "AUSTRALIA" and "8 DOLLARS."

Natasha Muhl's reverse design consists of two kookaburras perched atop a wooden fence. Muhl shows the adult from behind and the young bird from the side, though the adult's head is turned to give the holder a clear profile view. The name of the coin, "AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA," arches over the image while information about the metal content of the coin, "2017 5 OZ 999 SILVER," is included along the rim on the bottom.
