Issued by the Perth Mint, the 1998 Australian Kookaburra Silver Coin is part of the Kookaburra Series, introduced in 1990 and continuing through present day. The 1998 Kookaburra is a 1 oz. coin, although the series as a whole additionally produces 2 oz., 10 oz., and 1 kilo coins as well. Consisting of .999 fine silver, the round measures approximately 40.6 mm in diameter and 4 mm in thickness, with a weight of 31 grams. Each coin arrives in an airtight, plastic capsule.
The obverse features sculptor Raphael Maklouf’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, an image used on the coinage for several Commonwealth nations. In addition, the words “Queen Elizabeth” and “Australia,” as well as the face value, 1 Dollar, are included.
The reverse features the Kookaburra, a native Australian bird categorized as a tree kingfisher. Kookaburras are commonly associated with their resonating call which mimics that of human laughter. In addition to being a beloved species of the Australian people, the Kookaburra has been featured on a variety of Australian coinage and stamps as well as being one of three featured mascots at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. The reverse shows the Kookaburra perched on a fence, in addition to the words “THE AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA,” “1 OZ. .999 FINE SILVER,” and the date of mintage that encircle the outer rim of the coin.
