When the Silver Australian Kookaburra coin debuted in 1990 it set the stage for Perth Mint’s design focus for decades to come. The Silver Kookaburra has, since that time, used a new reverse design depicting this prominent member of the kingfisher species in a different relief each year. Other coins, such as the rebranded Gold Australian Kangaroo, Silver Koala, and Silver Kangaroo have all followed course.
The 2019 Silver Australian Kookaburra coin comes with a new design of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse side. This is the first update to the monarch’s effigy of Australian coinage since 1998, and though it is based on the Royal Mint of England’s fifth-generation design, it is actually the sixth different one on Australian coins during her reign.
In that obverse design on the 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra, you’ll find a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted wearing the Royal Diadem crown and Victorian coronation earrings. This is the first design since 1966 to depict Her Majesty’s neckline and shoulders in the portrait.
The reverse of 2019 Silver Kookaburra Coins features a new kookaburra design as well. This year, the terrestrial tree kingfisher is depicted on the branch of a sunken tree as the sun sets on the horizon in the distance. The rays of the setting sun even ripple across the water’s surface in this intricate design.
These 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins are available to you in Mint State 69 condition. Considered near-perfect coins, these specimens showcase full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor flaws. Such flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks and hairlines.
