The Silver Kookaburra coin debuted in 1990 with a 1 oz silver coin as the only option. In 1992, the program grew to include a 1 Kilo coin, 10 oz silver coin, and 2 oz silver coin to go along with the 1 oz option. From 1992 onward, the Perth Mint has offered the 1 oz, 10 oz, and 1 kilo coins in each year. The 2 oz coin was halted following the 2009 issue year.
The 10 oz silver coin in this Silver Australian Kookaburra collection has long been a low-mintage coin, with most of its issue years having a mintage figure below 10,000 coins in total. The 10 oz coin is always issued with an unlimited mintage, meaning the Perth Mint will strike the coins as long as demand persists, but only through the end of the calendar year date marked on the coin.
On the reverse of 2011 10 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins is the image of a kookaburra. The largest member of the kingfisher species of birds, these creatures are often associated with the Outback, where their human-like laughter (or call) can carry for miles. The design includes engravings of “Australian Kookaburra,” “2011 10 oz .999 Silver,” and the “P” mint mark.
The obverse of all Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty always features on the obverse of Australian coinage and is captured here in a right-profile portrait created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
These 2011 10 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins feature a protective plastic capsule and come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The mintage of 45,901 coins is the highest ever recorded in the 10 oz silver option in this series.
