A national treasure and an international find
The meat-eating kookaburras are avid hunters, and that’s a fitting comparison to silver collectors who are snatching up this coin. Minted in 99.9% fine silver, the Kookaburra coin is Australia’s original silver dollar…and a perennial sellout. It weighs 31.1 grams and is 32.6 mm in diameter.
- AN UPDATED DESIGN OF A PERENNIAL FAVORITE-- The Australian Kookaburra series is known for changing its imagery each year, and the 2017 all-new design was created by Natasha Muhi. The reverse displays an adult kookaburra sitting atop a wooden fence with a younger kookaburra, allowing one of the birds to be seen from behind and one from the side--truly giving you a complete picture of this beloved bird. Also inscribed on the reverse are the words "AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA," "1 OZ 999 SILVER," and "2017." The obverse of the coin features an image of Queen Elizabeth II designed Ian Rank-Broadley, a fourth-generation depiction utilized on many commonwealth and British coins since 1998. The inscriptions on the reverse include "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA," "1 DOLLAR."
- EXTREMELY LOW MINTAGE FOR SUCH A POPULAR COIN-- This coin was struck from 99.9% fine silver and is part of a maximum mintage of just 5,000 pieces. It ships in a plastic capsule that keeps your coin perfectly protected, and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
- CERTIFIED LEGAL TENDER -- These coins are certified legal tender of $1 Australian, and are backed by the Australian Government.
