Silver Australian Kookaburras are available from the Perth Mint annually as of 1990. The first major silver bullion collection from the mint to release on an annual basis, the series is famous for its use of new reverse designs of the kookaburra, a member of the kingfisher species of birds that is native to the Australian continent. Alongside its BU release each year, the mint offers a handful of unique proof versions. Today, 2018 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Kookaburras are available to you online at Silver.com.

The proof versions of the Silver Australian Kookaburra coin comes with traditional visual elements that include frosted design elements overlaying mirrored background fields. The result is a coin with a beautiful contrast between the foreground and background. These particular coins have a high-relief strike that delivers deeper background visuals and higher 3D relief on the design elements.

All of these 2018 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Kookaburras are available to you with beautiful packaging from the Perth Mint. The coins are set inside of black presentation clamshells from the mint with a colorized, Kookaburra-themed shipper.

Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse of the 2018 Proof Silver Kookaburras. This effigy of the Queen is the fifth-generation portrait for Australian coins and was originally designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England. The right-profile bust of the Queen shows her wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Rumored to be her favorite tiara, the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland piece was gifted to her grandmother, Mary of Teck, upon her marriage to the future King George V of England.

A kookaburra is shown flying in front of a harvest moon in a nighttime setting on the reverse face of 2018 1 oz Proof Silver Kookaburras. The kookaburra’s wings are flapped out behind its figure as it heads down to its nest for the night while the harvest moon rises into the night sky in the background. The kookaburra’s call is most commonly heard at dusk as the moon rises and it settles in for the night, and again at dawn as the sun rises and the birds awake for the day.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
