Perth Mint changed the silver coin industry with the introduction of its Australian Silver Kookaburra in 1990. The only annual bullion coin from the mint at that time was the Gold Nugget. Each year it featured the same nugget design on the reverse and the monarchs effigy on the obverse.
The Australian Silver Kookaburra started in 1990 with the goal of providing a new design on the reverse of a silver bullion coin in each following year. This concept was so popular, especially when paired with a native species design, that the mint scrapped the Gold Nugget and rebranded it as the Australian Gold Kangaroo with a new reverse design annually.
On the reverse of the 2018 10 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra Coin is the image of a kookaburra. These birds are synonymous with the Australian Outback, and are known around the country for their unique call which many say sounds just like human laughter. In this new design, the bird is featured taking flight with a detailed moon rising to light the sky behind it.
The obverse of the Australian Silver Kookaburra Coin includes the fourth-generation image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys effigy always features on the obverse of Australian coinage, and is updated regularly to reflect her age. This image was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
Perth Mint has established an unlimited mintage for the 10 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra. By this, the mint means that it will strike the 10 oz coins to meet demand from investors through the end of the 2018 calendar year as that is the issue date of the coins.
Your 2018 10 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra Coin is in BU condition. Coins in this condition show no signs of wear and tear, but may feature minor flaws as a result of the striking of blanks during production. These flaws range from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks.
