Australian Silver Kookaburra
Gainesville Coins carries a wide selection of the Perth Mint Silver Kookaburras. The Silver Kookaburra was first minted in 1990 as a 1 oz silver coin. In subsequent years, the Perth Mint added ½ oz, 2 oz, 10 oz, and kilo sizes. Each year features a new reverse design making the Silver Kookaburra a favorite among silver bullion collectors and investors.
The annual mintage of the 1 oz Silver Kookaburra is set at 300,000. Silver Kookaburras are 99.9% pure silver, and are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act of 1965.
The Kookaburra is a member of the Kingfisher family of birds and is an iconic symbol of Australia’s natural wildlife.
