This is the 28th year release of the Australian Kookaburra design. Each of these coins contains 1 Kilo (31.15 Troy oz) of .999 pure silver. This, combined with the very limited mintage of these coins, makes these highly collectible by both the investor and collector of the coins in these series. Whether youre interested in this coin to add to your collection or youre just getting started, youll appreciate this beautiful coin.
The kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species of birds, and is exclusively found on the Australian continent. The bird can be found from coast to coast. They have a notable call that sounds quite like the laughter of human beings.
The Australian Silver Kookaburra coins made their debut in 1990 as the very first in a series of coins that feature animal species from the Australian continent. The Kookaburra is the coin that inspired the Australian Gold Kangaroo (1990), the Australian Silver and Gold Koala (2008), and the .9999 pure Australian Silver Kangaroo (2016).
The obverse design of the 2017 Proof Australian Kookaburra 1 Kilo Silver Coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Imagined in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this design is the fourth-generation depiction of Her Majesty since 1952 to appear on Commonwealth and British coinage.
The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Australian Kookaburra 1 Kilo Silver Coin features an image of an adult and young kookaburra sitting on a wooden fence. The design is so detailed that it showcases even flat-head screws in the wooden boards of the fence.
Each of the Proof Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins available here today ships to you inside of the Perth Mints famous black box, which offers protection during shipping and a means of displaying your coin. That box ships inside of a Kookaburra-themed presentation package, and includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
