The Perth Mint presents the new 2018 Silver Australian Kookaburra coin.

Celebrating over a century of minting expertise and craftsmanship, Perth Mint issues some of the world’s finest bullion coins, meticulously struck from the purest precious metals. One of the most famous silver coin struck by the Perth Mint is the Silver Kookaburra coin program which debuted in 1990 and carries a yearly changing Kookaburra design – a symbol of the Australian wildlife.The kookaburra is the world’s largest kingfisher, with a body length of up to half of a meter and these birds are also known as ”laughing jackasse” due to their chattering calls.

These Silver coins have a superior quality finish which incorporates delicate, proof-like frosting within the central design. The obverse of the Silver Kookaburra coins shows Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse features Australia’s unique kookaburra.

This 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra Perth Mint showcases a flying kookaburra against the backdrop of a full moon and will be available starting on the 4th of October, 2017. The coin will be produced by the mint from .9999 fine silver in three weight options, 1 kilo, 10 oz., and 1 oz., the last one having a limited mintage of just 500,000 pieces.

Since its first issue, the Kookaburra coin series has added over 20 coins and gained an incredible demand due to its unique design and the highest bullion quality. They only have gained value over the time and the Perth Mint increased mintage from 300,000 to 500,000 coins in recent years.

The Kookaburras high collectibility combined with a low premium over spot make them one of the best investment choices.
