Composed of 1 troy ounce of .999 pure silver, the 1994 Australian Kookaburra is a simple and affordable way to invest in precious metal — and it’s eligible for contribution in your self-directed IRA.
Each 1 oz Silver Kookaburra arrives in brilliant uncirculated condition, housed in a plastic capsule for long-term storage and protection. Since 1990, the Perth Mint has released the Silver Kookaburra coin annually. Each installment features a new design, available in various sizes, from one ounce to one kilo.
The reverse of each 1994 1 oz Silver Kookaburra features two of the birds sitting shoulder-to-shoulder on a tree branch. It is inscribed with the words “THE AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA,” “1 OZ .999 SILVER,” “1994.”
The obverse of each coin features Raphael Maklouf’s Queen Elizabeth II design, and it is inscribed with the coin’s denomination of one dollar.
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.
