About Kookaburras

In Oz, they sing about the Kookaburra sitting in the old gum tree, laughing, eating all the gum, and chasing “monkeys” away. This same iconic birdie is the sole subject on bullion coins that the Perth Mint has been issuing as the Silver Kookaburra Coin Series since the 1990. What gets collectors' hearts racing over these coins is the value augmented by the exquisite detailing that go into rendering the birds in their natural habitat, the limited mintage, as well as designs that are unique to each year. This desirability applies to all coin weights from the original one ounce, to the half-ounce, two-ounce, ten-ounce, and a kilo, all at 99.9 percent pure silver. If you're a bullion collector who wants to buy them as a store of value, a numismatist, or someone looking for high-investment potential, then shop here from reliable sellers who ship with care. eBay offers a respectable selection of the limited mintages many with images of Queen Elizabeth II in obverse and in untouched proof-like conditions with their original capsules, or as pre-loved options. With a generous budget, you can buy a complete Kookaburra set that saves you time and energy you expend when buying single coins. Then you can preen and laugh like a Kookaburra while the coins are making their way home.
