Founded in 1896 as a branch to the British Royal Mint, Perth Mint today is one of the largest minting plants globally, owned by the Western Australian government. Manufacturer of the iconic ‘Kangaroo’ gold and silver investment coins, Perth Mint also produce a popular lunar series and a range of sought-after collector coins.
First issued by The Perth Mint in 1990, the Australian Kookaburra portrays a new impression of the famous bush bird each year. With its unmistakable laughing call, the kookaburra is synonymous with Australia – from the outback to the backyard. An essential feature of the dawn chorus, kookaburras also make their cackling call at sunset when establishing territory among family groups. Elements of the high relief design have been gilded in 24-carat gold, superbly combining two celebrated minting techniques.
The coin’s reverse design portrays a kookaburra perched upon a eucalyptus tree branch. The bird and outer ring of the coin are gilded in 24-carat gold. Also included is the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, purity and 2021 year-date. The coin’s obverse bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination. The coin has been struck with an extra-deep blank to showcase its superbly detailed design in high relief.
Housed in a classic display case with clear lid & special 30th anniversary illustrated shipper. Includes numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
