Order The Beautiful Silver Kookaburra - From Australia's Perth Mint

The first silver Kookaburra was struck at Australia's Perth Mint in 1990. The coins were made using .999 fine silver until 2018 when the purity increased to .9999. The coin's obverse always depicts Queen Elizabeth II. However, the reverse side is updated annually. It features Australia's native and much-beloved kookaburra, a bird with a distinctive "laughing" type of call. The call is often used as a sound effect in movie jungle scenes.

The Kookaburra is popular with collectors because the design is updated each year. Every release features one or more Kookaburras in the bird's natural habitat.

***Please note: Dates of these coins will be our choice and many orders will be filled with coins of the same date.***

Like most Perth Mint coins, the Kookaburra is individually sealed in a clear, hard plastic capsule at the Mint. 20 coins are shrink-wrapped in a roll, with 5 rolls going into each box of 100.

Special editions such as proof, high relief, privy marked, colored, and gilded are sometimes issued.  In 2015 a special 25th-anniversary edition of the coin featured the same image of the kookaburra as on the original 1990 coin. To differentiate the 1990 and 2015 coins the date on the reverse reads 1990-2015 and 2015 has been added to the obverse. 

The maximum mintage of the one troy-ounce coin has always been capped. The limit was initially set at 300,000 coins and later rose to 500,000 coins in 2011. Until 2008 the mintage cap was never reached. Actual production ranged from about 87000 coins up to 213,000. The financial crisis of 2008 jumpstarted demand for silver coins and production has consistently met the cap thereafter, except in 2017 and 2018.

The Kookaburra Features:

  • 1 troy oz of fine Silver
  • Different designs each year
  • Coins individually sealed in air-tight capsules
  • Multiples of 20 come in sealed rolls, and multiples of 100 come in cardboard boxes with sealed rolls inside
  • Sovereign coin backed by the Australian government

    Packed With Love
    So lovingly packed!! I love the Kookaburra Coins I ordered through Money Metals. When I received them, what came to mind was how lovingly packed they were. I placed an order with another precious metal company. I ordered 100 coins (5 tubes of 20). The tubes were smashed and the coins thrown all over the box. The coins were all scratched up. The order was poorly packed and the best this OTHER company could offer was $100 off a future order. I felt so cheated! But with Money Metals, I have always been so impressed with the professionalism and again how much care and love they put into every shipment. I love Money Metals. They are the company I will always go to!!

    Kookoo for Kookaburra
    This coin arrived in near perfect condition, I wish my other coins that I ordered would've been as good of quality as the kookaburra. Would order this coin again.

    Oy, buy Perth Mint with Crypto (Dash)
    I bought 5 Kopobaurras with Dash, the Perth Mint really outdoes themselves with these issues, I also just grabbed 3 Perth Koalas when they became available, don't sit on these offers, they don't last long.
