Why purchase this $8 Australia 2021-P 5 oz Incuse Silver Kookaburra Proof?
The Silver Kookaburra has been a favorite of collectors for three decades. The series' exquisite designs showcase one of Australia's most beautiful creatures, as well as the outstanding production quality of the Perth Mint. This is the first incuse issue in the series, making it an important piece just for its beauty but also for the history that it is making. With a mintage of just 500 pieces, though, this proof will not be available for long.
Stunning Kookaburra Design by Aleysha Howarth
Obverse: The obverse bears a right-side portrait of reigning British monarch and Australian head of state Queen Elizabeth II. The monarch is shown wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem, earrings, and a necklace in the image, which was designed by Jody Clark. Her effigy is encircled by a rim frame that bears inscriptions of her name, "ELIZABETH II," the name of the issuing country, "AUSTRALIA," and the face value of the coin, "8 DOLLARS."
Reverse: Aleysha Howarth's reverse design shows a kookaburra perched on the branch of a gum tree. The bird has its head turned, offering the holder a side view, and its breast is executed in fine detail. Encircling the image is a rim frame that bears inscriptions of the name of the coin, "AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA," its date, "2021," and its weight and purity, "5 OZ 9999 SILVER."
Impeccable PF70 UC FR with Exclusive Kookaburra Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this piece the company's highest grade, Proof 70. That grade means that a coin appears perfect as seen under 5x magnification. NGC also certified this piece Ultra Cameo (UC) and First Releases (FR). The UC designation credits the coin with exhibiting particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields, while the FR designation means that it was submitted for grading no more than 30 days after its initial mint release. This stunning Incuse Proof was paired with our ModernCoinMart exclusive kookaburra-themed certification label!
