A common guest of residential Australian gardens, the kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species. The Perth Mint is pleased to present three bullion coins featuring the kookaburra, meticulously struck from 99.99% pure silver in 1 kilo, 10oz and 1oz sizes. No mintage limit applies to the 1 kilo and 10oz coins, however production will close at the end of 2022 and The Perth Mint will declare each coin’s official mintage. Each coin in this program is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
Each coin’s reverse portrays a kookaburra perched on an ornamental bird bath among Agapanthus, flowering plants regularly seen in Australian gardens. All coin designs incorporate the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2022 year-date and the weight and purity. The obverse of each coin bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the coin’s design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
