Annual Australian Kookaburra releases are highly anticipated and this new 1oz silver high relief coin, with its limited mintage and classic display packaging, is another impressive addition to any collection. Perth Mint’s annual interpretations of the Australian Kookaburra have been highly sought-after since the launch of the resoundingly successful 1oz bullion coin in 1990. The spectacular entry of that release into worldwide markets prompted the first proof issue a year later.
Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Silver
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.
2018 Australian Kookaburra Design
For 2018 the iconic Australian bird has been depicted with impeccable attention to detail in full flight against the backdrop of a harvest moon. The design brilliantly celebrates how the kookaburras’ distinctive call is often heard at dusk when the moon is rising and the birds are roosting for the night, or at daybreak as they awake.
High Relief Finish
The depth and detail of the design has been enhanced by its high relief finish. The Perth Mint’s proof quality high relief strike is renowned throughout the world for its superb clarity and the additional detail it portrays.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 4,000 of the Australian Kookaburra 2018 1oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin in this packaging, from a mintage of 5,000.
Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate
The coin is housed in a classic Perth Mint display case within a themed shipper. The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
