The Perth Mint’s Silver Kookaburra silver coin series was first struck in 1990. To say that it has been exceedingly popular with stackers and Numismatic collectors all over the world is an understatement. Each of these magnificent silver coins features Australia’s native member of the kingfisher bird family, the Kookaburra. The series is struck in 1 oz. .9999 pure silver planchets and has a limited mintage. The 10 oz. and 1 Kilo sized coins are minted to demand.
The Perth Mint is one of the world’s premier mints, leading the way in the production of popular bullion products, Numismatic issues and circulating coins.
The Perth Mint’s Australian Silver Kookaburra series was introduced in 1990, making it one of the longest-running series in the industry today. The series celebrates the Kookaburra bird with a new reverse design every year. The series is struck in .9999 silver with the Australian Government guaranteeing the silver content and purity. The coins are legal tender Australian silver dollars under Australia’s Currency Act of 1965. The coins are available individually in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. They are fully struck, lustrous and unblemished examples shipped in a protective Mint capsule.
These iconic coins have a wide collector base like their Perth Mint Silver Koala counterparts and the new Perth Mint classic series the Australian Silver Kangaroo.
One of the exciting hallmarks of the series for collectors is the annual change of the design used on the reverse of the coin. This year’s reverse features a dynamic image of a Kookaburra in flight with the moon appearing overhead. Over the image appears the legend “Australian Kookaburra.” Beneath the image appears “2018” the weight and “.9999 silver.” To the lower right of the image is the classic Perth Mint “P” Mint mark The image used on the obverse of this series is the Ian Rank-Broadley classic portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Legends include “Elizabeth II” “Asutralia” and the denomination.
