2012 Australian Map Shaped Coin Series Kookaburra 1oz Silver Coin




The stunning Australian kookaburra is the first design featured in the exciting new Australian Map Shaped Coin Series which highlights native Australian wildlife. Purpose-built tooling and die design make this coin an exclusive and totally unique minting marvel!

The kookaburra is a bird famous for its laughing call that can frequently be heard at dawn and dusk across Australia. To hear the kookaburra can be a real experience, as the sound is uncannily human.

The coin’s coloured reverse depicts a kookaburra resting on a fence, against the background of a bush scene. The inscription KOOKABURRA also appears in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark and year-date.

No more than 6,000 of these coins will be issued worldwide.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a display case and custom-designed shipper.
