The Australian Silver Kookaburra coin is the longest-running bullion program from the Perth Mint. It was first introduced in 1990, and has featured a different design on the reverse face every year since its introduction. The kookaburra has been so popular that it helped generate demand for future programs from Perth Mint, such as the Lunar Series I, Lunar Series II, and the Australian Silver Koala.
For 2016, the Australian Silver Kookaburra coin is available in a total of three weights. While the 1 Kilo and 10 oz coins have an unlimited mintage level set by the Perth Mint, only 500,000 of these 2016 1 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra coins will be produced. Once they’re gone, they’re gone for good!
Each of the 2016 1 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra coins in this listing has a Brilliant Uncirculated finish. This means that each has no signs of wear and tear from handling, but they may show breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the striking process.
On the reverse side is the all-new kookaburra design, which features a single bird sitting atop a fence post with barbed wire wrapped around it. Engravings include “Australian Kookaburra,” and the coin’s year of issue, weight, purity, and metal content.
The obverse bears the familiar face of England’s Queen Elizabeth II. The nation’s longest serving monarch was captured in right-profile relief by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998, and her image represents the fourth-generation vision of Her Majesty.
These coins are struck at the Perth Mint in Australia. The nation’s oldest mint is not associated with the federal Royal Australian Mint, but its products are considered legal tender under the Currency Act of 1965.
