Bring a little laughter into your home with the 2014 Kookaburra 1 ounce silver coin! The laughing kookaburra has arrived from its home in Australia, ready to join collectors in their homes, even if they’re far from the land down under.
The 2014 design features a cheeky little Kookaburra sitting high on a gum tree, staring off to the right with a clear gaze out toward the viewer. The feathers are highly detailed, as is the outline on the gum leaves in the background. The words “AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA” are near the top on a shining rim; the lower rim says “2014 1 oz 999 SILVER.”
The reverse includes the stately image of Queen Elizabeth staring toward the right. The rim reads “ELIZABETH II” “AUSTRALIA” and “1 DOLLAR.”
The kookaburra is a large bird known for its call, a human-like “laugh.” They have dark brown wing feathers and lighter brown or beige feathers on their bellies and heads. Some subspecies have bright blue feathers on their wings and tails. They eat lizards, snakes, other small birds, mice and other meat. Some are so friendly that they will accept food from humans by hand.
The kookaburra is a common bird in Australia and is not threatened, though these 2014 1 oz silver coins are so popular they may soon be “extinct”--only 500,000 1 ounce coins will be minted! Be sure to order yours before they all fly away!

OverallBought these coins in march for $25 each. The coins came in air-tite capsules and almost proof quality. I think they will fetch $30+ next year making it another great purchase.

- Great to collect and stackHectoron 10/14/13
OverallThese coins are well designed and they are cheap in terms of premium over spot and as well its not that hard finding the other coins in the series, plus if you look at the coins in the previous years most have gone up in value in terms of coin collecting value plus its still a ounce of silver so it great for stackers to have in a set
