Each of these Australia Kookaburras contains 1 troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver!

Coins will arrive in a plastic capsule.

Composed of 1 troy ounce of .999 pure silver, the 1993 Australian Kookaburra is eligible for contribution in your self-directed IRA. Each 1 oz silver coin arrives in a plastic capsule for long-term storage and safekeeping.

Every year since 1990, the Perth Mint has released its Silver Kookaburra coin. Each installment features a new design, available in various sizes — from one ounce to one kilo.

Designed by Leslie Adonis, the reverse of each 1993 Silver Kookaburra shows the bird perched on a branch, feeding its young. It is inscribed with the words THE AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, 1 OZ .999 SILVER and 1993.

The obverse of each coin features the crowned profile of Queen Elizabeth II, and it is inscribed with the denomination 1 DOLLAR.

About the Kookaburra

Kookaburras grow between 11 and 17 inches in length and tend to live in forests and savannas — though they are also found in suburban areas with plenty of tall trees and running water. The Kookaburra is a carnivorous bird, known to eat the young of other birds, as well as mice, snakes, insects and a variety of small reptiles.

The bird has also become an icon of modern Australian culture. Most famously, Olly the Kookaburra was one of three mascots featured in the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. Its distinctive call — which sounds like laughter — has been featured at Disney theme parks and other tourist attractions, as well as in many films and television shows.

About the Perth Mint

The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 after gold was discovered in 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.
