The Australian Kookaburra high relief coin is a prestigious and limited offering from The Perth Mint. Native to Australia, kookaburras are best known for their unmistakable call, which sounds uncannily like loud, echoing human laughter.
Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver
The Australian Kookaburra 2013 1oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin is struck from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The coin's reverse depicts two young kookaburras sitting on a tree branch against a background of bush flowers. The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the 2013 year-date.
Superb High Relief
The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year-date and the monetary denomination.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 9,000 of these Australian Kookaburra 2013 1oz Silver Proof High Relief Coins in this packaging from a maximum mintage of 10,000.
The coin is housed in a presentation case and custom designed shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
