The largest coin available in the Perth Mint’s longest-running silver series is the 1 Kilo Kookaburra. Introduced into the series two years after its 1990 debut, the 1 Kilo coin is now the second-best-selling coin in the Kookaburra collection behind the 1 oz silver coin. When it comes to the 10 oz and 1 Kilo coin, most investors still prefer the 1 Kilo silver option. Right now, 2021 1 Kilo Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Each of the 2021 1 Kilo Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins in this product listing comes with individual acrylic capsules. The coins are offered in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and feature an unlimited mintage. This means the Perth Mint will continue striking this 2021 Kookaburra design into 2021 until the release of the 2022 version of the coin.
Beginning in 2020, the Perth Mint introduced a new microscopic security element to its silver bullion coins. The security element includes only a single letter that is within the inscription at the top of the reverse design field on these coins. The security feature is only visible under magnification.
The obverse side of the 2021 1 Kilo Australian Silver Kookaburra Coin features a bust of Queen Elizabeth II. In this portrait, Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. The State Diadem has a total of 1,333 diamonds in its setting that weigh more than 300 karats. This is the sixth-generation image of the Queen to feature on Australian coins during her reign.
On the reverse face of 2021 Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins is a new depiction of the kookaburra, the largest member of the kingfisher species. The design shows the kookaburra sitting on its perch in a gum tree with seedpods featured at the bottom of the design element.
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 as the third and final Royal Mint branch facility on the Australian continent. After the Currency Act of 1965 established the new Royal Australian Mint as the nation’s sovereign mint, the Perth Mint was eventually transferred to the state government of Western Australia by British authorities.
