Australian Silver Kookaburra coins were first introduced in 1990 and represented the start of a bullion coin design trend from the Perth Mint that focused on highlighting native species from the continent. The long-term popularity of these coins helped propel the latter releases of the Australian Silver Koala and the Australian Silver Kangaroo.

The kookaburra is a unique member of the kingfisher family. A carnivorous bird, it will eat almost anything including lizards, small insects, snakes, and even other smaller birds. The kookaburra is distinctive in the Outback for its call, which is eerily similar to human laughter.

Each of these 2016 1 Kilo Proof Australian Silver Kookaburra coins has a stunning proof finish, and ships to you in the classic black display case of the Perth Mint. Your coin and case ship inside a custom-designed shipper with a Kookaburra outline on it, the year of issue noted, and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity included.


The obverse of the popular Australian Silver Kookaburra coin features the image of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the engravings of her name, the nation of issue, and the face value of the coin.


On the reverse of the coin youll find the latest Kookaburra design from the Perth Mint, which depicts a solitary kookaburra on a fence post.
