A Year in History

1991 was a turbulent year, both in the United States and abroad. Several war-related stories dominated headlines as the world watched in awe.

- By 1991, the Gulf War was in full swing
- In March, the Yugoslav Wars began, precipitated by disagreements between Serbia and other Yugoslav republics
- The Soviet Union finally collapsed, dividing into 15 independent republics
- 1991 finally marked the end of the decades-long Cold War
- That same year, the Perth Mint released the second installment in its Silver Kookaburra coin series

1991 Silver Kookaburra Design

Every year since 1990, the Perth Mint has released the Silver Kookaburra Coin, featuring a new design available in various sizes, from one ounce to one kilo.

The reverse of each 1991 1 oz Silver Kookaburra shows the Australian bird perching on a branch, its head tilted to the right. It is inscribed with the words "THE AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA," "1 OZ .999 SILVER," "1991." The obverse of each coin features the crowned profile of Queen Elizabeth II, and it is inscribed with the coin’s denomination of five dollars.

About the Perth Mint

The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 after gold was discovered in local Australian deposits. The newly-established mint struck gold and silver sovereigns until Great Britain abandoned the gold standard in 1931.

The mint remained under British ownership until July of 1970, when it ceded to the state government of Western Australia. Today, the Perth Mint produces nearly all of the nation’s legal tender bullion coins in its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
