The most popular coin program from thePerth Mintin Australia is its Silver Kookaburra. Available since 1990, this popular coin was the first from the mint to use native wildlife species as inspiration for the design features of the coin. Right now, the 2016 1 oz Australian Kookaburra is available with perfect certification from the NGC, courtesy of Provident Metals.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships in a plastic slab to protect the condition of the coin.
  • Maximum mintage of 500,000 coins for global distribution.
  • Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Face value of $1 (AUD) is fully backed by Australia’s government.
  • The obverse bears the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Bears the latest Kookaburra design from the Perth Mint on the reverse.
  • Issued a grade of Mint State 70 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.

All 2016 1 oz Australian Kookaburra coins available in this Provident Metals listing are perfect specimens. According to the NGC, coins with an MS70 grade have their full luster from the mint, and lack any detracting flaws on the surfaces.

Australian Kookaburra coins debuted in 1990, and eventually spawned the popular Australian Koala and all-new 2016 Australian Kangaroo. Each of these series shares common features. All three features new designs each year, and they are all inspired by native species on the Australian continent.

Obverse Design

On the obverse face is the latest kookaburra design. In this depiction, a single bird is visible sitting atop a fence post in the Australian Outback. The background scene is desolate, with one lone tree rising toward the sky. Engravings include Australian Kookaburra and the coins year of issue, weight, purity, and metal content.

Reverse Design

The reverse bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Featured in right-profile relief, this image was created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998. Though a new version of the Queen’s portrait was made available in 2015, 2016 coins from the Perth Mint will continue with the image from Broadley.


Australian Kookaburra Silver coins are available from the Perth Mint in 2016 with 1 Kilo, 10 oz., and 1 oz. weights. The coins will have unlimited mintages for the two heavier weights, while these 1 oz coins are capped at 500,000 in total for global distribution.
