One of the best-selling silver coins in the world today is the Australian Silver Kookaburra. Introduced in 1990, the coin is different than many of its major counterparts from America, Canada, and Britain in that it uses a new image of the Kookaburra on the reverse side each year.

Australias silver bullion coins have undergone some significant changes in the 2018 and 2019 release years. First and foremost, the Silver Kookaburra and Silver Koala joined the Silver Kangaroo for the first time in 2018 with .9999 pure silver content. The Silver Kangaroos 2016 debut marked the first-ever use of .9999 pure silver in an annual-release bullion coin.
More importantly, 2019 saw the first change to Queen Elizabeth IIs effigy on the obverse of bullion coinage since 1998. Gone is Ian Rank-Broadleys fourth-generation British portrait that has been on British and Australian coinage since 1998, and in its place is a new sixth-generation Australian version from Jody Clark.
These 2019 1 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins are available to you here with a near-perfect grade. The NGC issues the Mint State 69 certification to coins with full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Acceptable flaws at this certification level include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
On the reverse of 2019 Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins is the image of the largest member of the kingfisher species. The kookaburra depicted here is perched on the branch of a sunken tree as the sun sets in the distance over the shores of the lake. The setting suns rays ripple across the water just in front of the branch.
The obverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Kookaburra Coins includes an all-new effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Based on Jody Clarks fifth-generation design for the Royal Mint of England, this is the sixth portrait of the Queen to feature on Australian coins and the first since 1966 to include her shoulders and neckline in the image.
