The Perth Mint is known for releasing beautifully designed coins each year, featuring some of the incredible animals that are native to Australia. Some of the annual release series include the Silver Koala, Silver Kangaroo, and Silver Wedge Tail Eagle, and of course the famous Silver Kookaburra. The Kookaburra collection was introduced in 1990 and is the longest-running silver coin from the Perth Mint. The 2017 Australian Kookaburra 1 oz Silver Coin is offered in 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver, with a face value of $1. The NGC has designated these coins as having a Mint State of 70. These coins are considered to be in perfect condition, and are secured inside of protective plastic slabs to protect their condition.
The kookaburra belongs to the kingfisher family of birds. There are, however, four distinct subspecies of the kookaburra in Australia, New Guinea, and the Aru Islands. The laughing kookaburra is featured on the 2017 Australian Kookaburra 1 oz Silver Coin. This bird is known for having an interesting cry that sounds very much like the laughter of a human.
Your 2017 Australian Kookaburra 1 oz Silver Coin is offered in perfect condition, as certified by the NGC. The NGC issues Mint State 70 grades to coins with full, original mint luster and a complete lack of detracting flaws on any of the surface areas or design elements.
The obverse design of the 2017 Australian Kookaburra 1 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This fourth-generation portrait of Her Majesty was designed in 1998 by famed sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse design of the 2017 Australian Kookaburra 1 oz Silver Coin features the 2017 design of the Kookaburra. In this design, two kookaburras are depicted sitting on a wooden fence. The younger bird is shown looking up at the adult. The words Australian Kookaburra and the year of issue are also engraved on the reverse of the coin, along with the weight and purity of the coin.
The 2017 Australian Kookaburra 1 oz Silver Coin was only released in 500,000. There are limited numbers of the MS70 certified coins available. The coins are a great addition to your collection, as they will only hold their value.
