In 1990, the Perth Mint launched the Australian Kookaburra coin series, marking the beginning of a cherished tradition of featuring native wildlife in exquisite silver.


Adorning the obverse of the 2001 Kookaburra 1 oz Silver Coin is Queen Elizabeth II, portrayed in an elegant profile by Ian Rank-Broadley, wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Inscriptions read ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 1 DOLLAR.


Turning to the reverse, the 2001 Australian Kookaburra Silver Coin captures a pair of kookaburras perched on a branch, their bond evident as they sit back-to-back, symbolizing loyalty and companionship. Inscriptions include THE AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, 1 OZ. 999 SILVER, and 2001.


Kookaburras are carnivorous birds that primarily feed on small animals such as insects, worms, lizards, snakes, frogs, and even small birds and mammals. They hunt by perching on a high vantage point and swooping down to catch their prey.
