Story

Trusted by investors since 1990

First issued in 1990, the Australian Kookaburra is a trusted silver bullion coin series featuring imagery of the iconic bird that draws its name from the Wiradjuri word ‘gugubarra’. First Nations people, who have lived here for tens of thousands of years, tell numerous stories about the kookaburra, and it has subsequently been idolised in contemporary Australian arts and literature.

2023 Kookaburra design

The 34th annual Kookaburra design portrays two birds perched on branches surrounding waratah, a native floral treasure. The design incorporates the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2023 year-date and the coin’s weight and purity.

Obverse design

The coin portrays the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Authentication feature

The coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.

Presentation

Each Australian Kookaburra 2023 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
