Why purchase this pristine First Releases 5 oz. Silver Incuse 2022-P Australian Kookaburra Proof coin?
The Australian Kookaburra series has been an annual product of the Perth Mint since 1990. The series is known for its annually changing imagery celebrating one of Australia's most cherished native birds. In 2021, the series was supplemented with a 5 oz. proof coin, which is minted with exciting incuse Kookaburra imagery on the reverse, contrasted against a high relief obverse design.
Enchanting Incuse Kookaburra Design
Obverse: The obverse rendition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is minted in standard high relief format. The monarch's portrait was designed by acclaimed British sculptor Jody Clark in 2015. A frame surrounding the effigy contains the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "8 DOLLARS."
Reverse: A tranquil garden scene is depicted on the reverse, featuring a lone kookaburra perched on the edge of an ornate birdbath, with the distinctive blossoms of Agapanthus in the background. Inscribed "KOOKABURRA," "2022," "5 OZ 9999 SILVER" and the Mint mark "P."
