Australia is home to arguably the most diverse selection of wildlife on the planet, and the Perth Mint never ceases to remind us of that. Of the many strange, unique, and intriguing animals, few stick out more than the Kookaburra. This bird, whose call sounds similar to a human laugh, is one of the most iconic of all the Australian birds, so it is no wonder why the Perth Mint made a coin to celebrate it. The 2015 10 oz Silver Kookaburra is not the first Perth coin depicting this fine bird, but it is definitely the most attractive.
The obverse side of the 2015 10 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra coin is very similar to past year’s editions and features the profile image of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. The queen is shown wearing her regal tiara. Her name and the country are inscribed to her left and right which reads “Elizabeth II” and “Australia.” The coins minting year is also marked to the queen’s right. Below is the coin’s face value of “10 Dollars.”
The reverse of the coin showcases an all new kookaburra design. In this scene, the native Australian bird is shown right-facing and is perched on a tree stump. In the background are many leaves and tree branches. Surrounding the bird are inscriptions for the bird and the coin’s weight and purity. This information reads “The Australian Kookaburra 10 oz .999 Silver.” The years 1990-2015 are also inscribed to commemorate the 25th year of minting.
The 2015 10 oz Silver Kookaburra is just one of many Perth Mint silver coins celebrating the wide array of wildlife that calls Australia home. Founded in 1899 as an extension of the Royal Mint of England, the Perth Mint has long been producing the coinage of Australia. Nowadays, Perth is regarded as one of the finest mints in the world.
