The kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species of birds, and is exclusively found on the Australian continent. Found from coast to coast, these birds are notable for their wild call which sounds humorously similar to the laughter of human beings.
Australian Silver Kookaburra coins debuted in 1990 as the first in a series of gold and silver bullion coins that feature animal species from the continent. This is the coin that inspired the Australian Gold Kangaroo (1990), the Australian Silver and Gold Koala (2008), and the .9999 pure Australian Silver Kangaroo (2016).
The reverse of the 2017 Australian Silver Kookaburra coin includes a brand-new image. There are two kookaburra birds sitting on a wooden fence, with intricate designs that showcase even flat-head screws in the wooden boards of the fence.
On the obverse of all 2017 1 Kilo Proof Australian Silver Kookaburra coins youll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this design is the fourth-generation depiction of Her Majesty since 1952 to appear on commonwealth and British coinage.
Each of the Proof Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins available here today ships to you inside of the Perth Mints famous black box, which offers protection during shipping and a means of displaying your coin. That box ships inside of a Kookaburra-themed presentation package, and includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
