A common guest of Australian residential gardens, the kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species. The Perth Mint is pleased to present these 1 oz bullion coins featuring the kookaburra, meticulously struck from 99.99% pure silver in the 1oz size. Only 500,000 1oz coins will be released. Each 1 oz coin in the Kookaburra collection is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The 2022 1 oz Silver Kookaburra Coin Design
New for 2022, each coin’s reverse design portrays a kookaburra perched on an ornamental birdbath among Agapanthus, flowering plants regularly seen in Australian gardens. The design incorporates the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2022 year-date, weight and purity. Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the coin. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass. The obverse of each coin bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
