Considered the flagship coin series of the Perth Mint, silver Kookaburras were first introduced in 1990. Presently, the series has 23 coins in its collection, each with a unique image of the most famous bird in Australia on the obverse. The obverse design changes annually; one reason the silver coins are appealing to both investors and collectors. What’s even more interesting is that the reverse, which bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II, is set in a proof finish. The coins from 1990 to 1998 have the Queen Elizabeth sculpture of Raphael Maklouf, while the coins from 1999 to 2015 depict the sculpture of Ian Rank-Broadley.
The Silver Kooks are intricately and artistically sculpted by expert Perth Mint designers and is produced in 1 kilo, 10 oz, 1 oz, and 1/2 oz sizes. The Perth Mints famed silver coins have an extremely low mintage each year, making it difficult to complete the 1990 to 2015 set.
