A wonderful memento of Perth, this coin depicts, in superb high relief, a kookaburra flying in Kings Park with the Western Australian capital’s skyline in the background. Known as Australia’s ‘king of the bush’, kookaburras are also popular inhabitants of urban areas, including Perth’s glorious 400 hectares of open space on the edge of its CBD.
99.99% Pure Silver
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver in antiqued quality.
The coin’s reverse of the coin depicts a kookaburra flying in Perth’s Kings Park with the city skyline in the background. The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the 2018 year-date.
To capture the depth and detail of the design, the coin is struck in high relief to a rimless format, and has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment the appearance of each coin may vary.
