Among the many silver coins for sale from the Perth Mint, the Australian Silver Kookaburra coin has to be considered the most iconic of the group.

The Australian Silver Kookaburra is generally viewed as a trendsetter from the Perth Mint. It is the longest running silver bullion coin program at the mint, and its use of the native kookaburra in a new pose each year set the path for all coins that followed. However, the Silver Kookaburra is a follower in 2018 in one respect.
The Perth Mint now issues the coins with .9999 pure silver following the popular release of the 2016 Australian Silver Kangaroo as the mint’s first-ever .9999 pure silver bullion coin.
All 2018 1 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra coins in this product listing are perfect specimens in the eyes of the NGC. Coins with the Mint State 70 certification show full, original mint luster and lack any signs of detracting flaws on the surface areas. The included Early Release label in the slab indicates the coins arrived from the Perth Mint within 30 days of their 2018 release date.
On the reverse of the 2018 Australian Silver Kookaburra, you’ll find the image of one kookaburra in flight over the Outback. The moon rises high into the sky behind the bird’s outstretched wings. There are inscriptions of the coin’s series name, the “P” mint mark, year of issue, weight, purity, and metal content.
The obverse of the 2018 1 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra Coin includes the fourth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In this depiction, Her Majesty was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 for the Royal Mint. Inscriptions include the Queen’s name, the nation of issue, and the face value of the coins.
