Each coin’s reverse portrays two genial birds perched on branches surrounding waratah, a native floral treasure. All coin designs incorporate the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2023 year-date, the weight and purity.
The obverse of each coin bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the coin’s design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
No mintage limit applies to the 1 kilo and 10oz coins, however production will close at the end of 2023 and The Perth Mint will declare each coin’s official mintage.
Each coin in this program is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
Devoted to other family members, kookaburras gather at dusk and dawn to declare territorial boundaries with shrill, cackling laughs. Having first heard the call of the Australian Kookaburra in 1990, investors have been faithful to the iconic silver series for more than three decades.
