Buy with Confidence
The 2022 Australian Kookaburra silver coin displays a stunning engraving of the bird perched on a bird bath, surrounded by the lovely vegetation of an Australian garden and an agapanthus flower in the background. Just as the kookaburra is known for displaying a captivating presence with its loud, cackling call, the silver coin engages the eye with the beautiful design of the chosen animal.
- Ships individually in a protective coin capsule
- Consisting of 1 oz 9999 Fine Silver
- Obverse: The coin portrays the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
- Reverse: Features an engraving of the Australian Kookaburra bird perched on the edge of a bird bath, along with the metal weight, purity, country and year of issue
The kookaburra is native to Australia and New Guinea and is often found in habitats ranging from dry savannahs to humid forests, which indicates why the design depicts the bird by a water source. In Native American cultures, the kookaburra is commonly known as the Laughing Kookaburra as it is associated with icons of joy and laughter. This is undoubtedly due to its bird call that is said to ring out happiness to those who hear it.
The coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.
ABOUT THE SERIES
The Kookaburra Silver Coin Series was first issued in 1990 and has since been a trusted bullion coin series from the Perth Mint. The design changes on a yearly basis but always sports the iconic kookaburra, as it honours this highly celebrated bird among the First Nations people in the region.
ABOUT THE PERTH MINT
The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint’s 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
