Invest in the 1oz Silver Kookaburra, which contains one troy oz / 31.1035 grams of .999 pure Silver. This popular series was first issued by the Perth Mint in Australia in 1990.
The reverse of the coin features a Kookaburra, usually perched on a fence post set in the Australian landscape - however, the design varies from year to year. The words 'AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA', are inscribed on the coin, along with the Perth Mint's "P" mintmark and the year of issue. On the obverse of the coin is shown Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the face value of the coin: 1 Australian dollar.
Customers consistently comment on the beauty of this exquisitely modeled coin, popular with investors and coin collectors alike. The Silver Kookaburra coins are issued in limited runs. Hence they often have greater value than other coins of the same weight. Various years of the coin are available, though orders tend to be fulfilled with the most recent year of issue. The Perth Mint offers a range of coins with designs inspired by the Australian wildlife, including the Kangaroo and Platypus - of which the Kookaburra remains extremely popular.
