With its extremely limited mintage this new release is a highly desirable addition to a collection. The Perth Mint’s annual interpretations of the Australian Kookaburra have been highly sought-after since the launch of the resoundingly successful 1oz bullion coin in 1990. The spectacular entry of that release into worldwide markets prompted the first proof issue a year later.
Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Silver
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 5oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.
2018 Australian Kookaburra Design
Australia’s ‘king of the bush’ is illustrated in full flight against the backdrop of a harvest moon. The detailed depiction evokes how the kookaburras’ characteristic ‘laugh’ is often heard when the moon can be seen, either during the evening when kookaburras are roosting for the night or at daybreak as they awake.
High Relief Finish
The depth and detail of the design has been enhanced by its high relief finish. The Perth Mint’s proof quality high relief strike is renowned throughout the world for its superb clarity and the additional detail it portrays.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965
, the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
