The kookaburra is a member of the broader kingfisher species, but is not commonly found along coastal areas like some of its cousins. The kookaburra is a terrestrial tree kingfisher and is found throughout the Australian continent and New Guinea. The bird’s distinctive laugh has become synonymous with generic soundtracks featuring the wild calls of animals in the Outback.
All of these 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins are available to you here today in perfect condition. Coins with a Mint State 70 certification have full, original mint luster and lack any signs of detracting flaws on either the surface areas or the design elements.
The 2019 issue of silver bullion coins such as the Silver Kookaburra marks the first change to Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy in over 20 years. Since 1998, the fourth-generation design created for Royal Mint of England coins by Ian Rank-Broadley has also featured on Australian coins as the fifth effigy of Her Majesty.
On the obverse of 2019 Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins, you’ll find the latest effigy of the Queen to grace Australian coins. This sixth-generation design is based on Jody Clark’s 2015 artwork for the Royal Mint. An expansion of that piece though, this Australian design includes the Queen’s neckline and shoulders. It is the first portrait of the monarch on Australian coins since 1966 to do so.
The reverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Kookaburra Coins includes yet another new depiction of the popular kingfisher species. The bird is shown here resting on the branch of a tree that has sunken into a lake. As the sun sets it the distance, its rays shoot across the horizon and ripple over the surface of the water.
