This extraordinary 2oz silver proof high relief gilded coin showcases Australia’s largest kingfisher, the Kookaburra. 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.
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,000 of the 2022 Australian Kookaburras.
The coin’s design depicts a representation of a kookaburra perched on an ornamental bird bath among Agapanthus, flowering plants regularly seen in Australian gardens.
The bird and outer ring of the coin are gilded in 24-carat gold. The reverse also includes the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the coin’s weight, purity and 2022 year-date.
The coin’s obverse bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen
Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with an illustrated shipper, the coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
