The Kookaburra series, which was introduced in 1990, quickly rose to the top of the Perth Mint’s most popular offerings. First minted in the 1 oz size, the mint quickly expanded its size offering to include other sizes like the 2 oz, 10 oz and 1 kg. The series has become increasingly popular in the world of precious metals and coinage, and as such, Perth typically mints at least 100,000 of these coins each year.
The all new 2015 10 oz Silver Kookaburra Coins have a retro design which features the same intricate artwork as the 1990 edition of the coin. This image shows a Kookaburra, one of Australia’s most famous native birds, perched upon a tree stump. The name of the bird “The Australian Kookaburra” is etched onto the coin with the weight, purity and type of metal listed as well. The years of “1990-2015” are also etched onto the bottom of the coin to celebrate the 25th minting year of the series.
Just like previous edition Kookaburras and other Perth Mint coins, the obverse bears Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In his rendering, the queen is wearing her famous tiara. Her name “Elizabeth II” and the country “Australia” are etched around her with the coin’s minting year “2015” listed thereafter. The bottom center of the coin reveals the coin’s legal tender value of 10 Dollars.
