A common guest of residential Australian gardens, the kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher
species. 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.
Only 500,000 1oz coins will be released. No mintage limit applies to the 1 kilo and 10oz coins, however production will close at the end of 2024 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.
Each coin’s reverse portrays a kookaburra in flight over a gorge with a snake in its talons. All coin designs
incorporate the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, a ‘P125’ mintmark signifying The Perth mint’s 125th anniversary, the
2024 year-date, the weight and purity. The obverse of each coin bears the Dan Thorne effigy of His Majesty King Charles III, and the monetary denomination.
