Each year that the Perth Mint releases the Silver Australian Kookaburra coin there is a limited mintage figure set for its 1 oz version of the coin. Typically offered in at least 1 oz and 1 kilo options, the 1 oz coin is the only one to have a set mintage, while the other weights have unlimited mintages that allow the mint to strike the coins to meet demand through the end of the calendar year of issue.
In the case of the 2017 1 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra, the Perth Mint set a relatively high 500,000 coin mintage. Additionally, the 2017 Silver Kookaburra was a unique issue as it was the final one in nearly three decades of production to feature .999 fine silver. Beginning in 2018, Silver Kookaburra coins would feature .9999 fine silver instead.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra Coin is the image of two kookaburras perched on the top of a wooden fence. Engravings include “Australian Kookaburra” above the design field, with “2017 1 oz 999 Silver” below the field.
The obverse of the Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II developed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint in England. Engravings on this face feature “Elizabeth II,” “Australia,” and “1 Dollar.”
