Comments

The Australian Silver Kookaburra series from the Perth Mint began in 1990 and is the longest-running bullion program from the mint. Each year has a different design of a kookaburra on the reverse.

The laughing Kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species, and a bird synonymous with the Australian bush. This bird species is indigenous to Australia and is known for their call, which is said to sound like echoing human laughter.

The coin was released in a Limited Edition Coincard with a Kangaroo Paw Privymark at the Perth ANDA Show


It was also planned to be released at the cancelled Brisbane ANDA Show with a Cooktown Orchid Privymark. Dealers sold it instead.


It was also planned to be released at the cancelled Melbourne ANDA Show with a Common Heath Privymark. Dealers sold it instead.
