The Australian Kookaburra was introduced in 1990 by the Perth Mint. For the first two years of availability in 1990 and 1991, the Perth Mint offered only a 1 oz silver coin in the collection. In 1992, the Perth Mint expanded the series to include three additional choices for investors to choose from when buying silver.
Those new weights made available in 1992 were the 2 oz, 10 oz, and 1 Kilo silver coins. From 1992 to 2009, all four weights of the Australian Kookaburra were available on an annual basis from the Perth Mint. In 2010, the 2 oz silver coin was suspended and has not been reintroduced into the collection. The mintage of the 1 oz silver coin is capped each year, but the remaining 10 oz and 1 Kilo coins have no mintage cap.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of the 2021 10 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra Coin. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief in this portrait with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. This is the sixth-generation bust of the Queen to feature on Australian coins during her reign and was designed by Jody Clark in 2015.
A kookaburra is shown sitting on its perch in the reverse design of 2021 Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins. The image features a kookaburra sitting with its wings at its side on the branch of a gum tree with seedpods visible beneath the branch in the design element. This side of the coin also features a microscopic security element visible only under magnification. This single-letter security element is within the inscription of “Australian Kookaburra.”
These 2021 10 oz Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins are available with individual acrylic capsules and all come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. With an unlimited mintage, the Perth Mint will continue to strike this 10 oz silver coin until the 2022 version of the coin is released.
