The 10 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra coin debuted from the Perth Mint in 1992. After two years of availability for the Silver Kookaburra with just a 1 oz weight, the Perth Mint added the 1 Kilogram and 10 oz silver coins. A 2 oz coin was also added at the time, but was suspended in 2009. Today, 2019 10 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

Numerous changes have come to the Silver Australian Kookaburra collection in the last two years. The 2018 release featured the first-ever use of .9999 fine silver content in the Silver Kookaburra range, with the Silver Koala also getting an upgrade to .9999 fine silver in that same year.
2010 will go down as an even more dramatic year of change for the Silver Australian Kookaburra. The coin is among the first major silver bullion coins from the Perth Mint this year to feature the sixth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse side. Designed by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint, this expanded vision of the coin is the first on an Australian coin since 1966 to feature more than just the Queen’s head, but her neckline and shoulders as well.

The obverse of Silver Australian Kookaburra coins this year feature the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here wearing the Royal Diadem crown upon her head and a Victorian coronation necklace around her neckline.
On the reverse of 2019 10 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins is the image of a single kingfisher bird on the branch of a tree. The tree and its branch have sunk into a body of water, across which you can see the sun setting. The rays of the sun reflect beautifully off the ripples of the water’s surface.
