Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins Design

Like others in the silver bullion family of the Perth Mint, the Australian Silver Kookaburra sports a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse side. Up until 2018, the coin’s obverse has featured the award-winning design work of British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.

The coin’s reverse side features the kookaburra, a bird whose characteristics are as curious as its name. It is named after its laugh-like call, spelled onomatopoeically as “guuguubarra” by the Wiradjuri indigenous people of Australia. The image of the kingfisher, perched on a tree branch, is intricately engraved. It is rounded off with the lettering “Australian Kookaburra” in addition to the coin’s size, silver purity, and year of mintage.

History of Australian Silver Kookaburra Coins

Introduced in 1990, the Australian Silver Kookaburra Coin is the oldest and longest-running of the Perth Mint’s silver bullion line that also includes the koala, kangaroo, and the Chinese zodiac. The mint guarantees the release of a 1 oz size increment each year, as well as new annual designs of the kingfisher species. 

The larger sizes of this coin have unlimited mintages while the popular 1 oz size variant has a maximum mintage of 500,000 coins, making it collectible. The silver coins were declared legal tender under the Australian Currency Act.
