The Silver Kookaburra coin’s 1990 debut changed the course of Perth Mint coinage. The Silver Kookaburra was the first to focus its designs on native species from the continent of Australia and use new designs with each passing issue year. The Silver Koala, Gold Kangaroo, and Silver Kangaroo coins would later follow this same model. Right now, 1 Kilo Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins are available to purchase online at Silver.com.
