The 2017 Proof Australian Kookaburra 5 oz Silver Coin has a limited mintage of just 1,000 coins, which makes it quite collectible. The first Silver Kookaburra coin was released in 1990, which makes this collection the oldest and longest-running program offered by the Perth Mint. The 2017 Kookaburra features a pair of the birds upon a fence, looking every bit as quirky and as cute as they are known for being. The coins are made with 5 Troy oz of .999 pure silver, which makes them even more desirable for collectors and investors both. The coin ships tucked away inside of a display box and will include a Certificate of Authenticity.
The 2017 Proof Australian Kookaburra 5 oz Silver Coin is a high-relief strike offered by the Perth Mint. Each of the coins features a concave surface that will ensure the best flow of silver into the die and an excellent strike that ultimately leads to the stunning finish offered by the coins.
The 2017 Proof Australian Kookaburra 5 oz Silver Coin features this bird, an Australian icon, that is the largest member of the kingfishers. The Kookaburra can be found all over Australia and is hilariously noted for their call which sounds very much like a person laughing.
The obverse design of the 2017 Proof Australian Kookaburra 5 oz Silver Coin features the 1998 right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The portrait is the fourth-generation effigy created of Her Majesty since she took the throne. It was created by famed sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Australian Kookaburra 5 oz Silver Coin features the fresh 2017 design in the series. This image features two Kookaburra birds sitting on a wooden fence. An adult and younger bird are featured. Also featured on the reverse of the coin are the year of issue, name of the coin series, along with the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin.
The Perth Mint is well-known for producing some of the most interesting and well-designed pieces in the world. It has the distinction of being the oldest operating mint facility in Australia.
