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

Coin will arrive in a plastic capsule.

Composed of 1 troy ounce of .999 pure silver, the 2008 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 annually. Each installment features a new design, available in various sizes, from one ounce to one kilo.

The reverse of each 2008 1 oz Silver Kookaburra features the bird perching on a barbed wire fence next to a spider web, designed by Shevaun Buschenhofen. It is inscribed with the words “THE AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, 1 OZ .999 SILVER” and the year.

The obverse of each Silver Kookaburra features Ian Rank-Broadley’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.
