The 1990 and 1991 issues of the Silver Australian Kookaburra coins featured only a 1 Troy oz silver coin for investors. Starting in 1992, the 1 kilogram and 10 oz coins were issued for the collection. To this date, the 1 kilogram and 10 oz coins remain annual options, with a 2 oz bullion coin formerly available from 1992 to 2009.
From 1990 to 2017, the Silver Australian Kookaburra coins featured .999 fine silver content. Starting in 2018, the Perth Mint increased the silver content of the coins to .9999 fine silver. Now, in 2019 the Silver Australian Kookaburra Coin features the first new effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on Australian coinage since 1998.
On the obverse of 2019 1 Kilo Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins, you’ll find the new sixth-generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has previously featured in five different portraits during her reign, with the latest design running from 1998 to 2018. This right-profile portrait of Her Majesty comes from Jody Clark’s Royal Mint design debuting in 2016, with this particular design featuring her neckline and shoulders for the first time on an Australian coin since 1966.
The reverse of 2019 Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins features a new design for the year. A kookaburra is depicted sitting on the perch of a broken tree branch sunk into a lake. The sun sets over the horizon at the edge of the lake as the sun’s rays reflect off the surface of the water and across its rippling surface.
The Perth Mint issues the 1 kilo coin with an unlimited mintage figure for 2019. The coins will be struck for no more than 12 months to meet any demand for the coins.
