1oz. Australian Silver Kookaburra Bullion Coin

1990 - Present

The Australian Silver Kookaburra bullion coin was first produced in 1990 and is minted at Australia’s Perth Mint.

Kookaburras are part of the family of birds called tree kingfishers, they're native to Australia, and New Guinea, and they grow from 11in. to 17in. in length.

The name "Kookaburra" originates from the Wiradjuri people of Australia.

The kookaburra has a very loud call that is known for sounding like echoing human laughter.

You can hear the Kookaburra's unique call in the video below.

Free Bullion Investment Guide
Thanks You for Visiting!

My name is Steven Warrenfeltz, and I created the this guide for those who are looking for honest information about investing in precious metals bullion.

The other side of this guide is my way of fulfilling a promise to a childhood friend who died of cancer.

That promise was to do whatever I could to support those who are Battling Cancer (researchers/patients), and in doing so, try to help rid the world of this horrible disease.

The guide is my effort to make a bigger impact against the disease by combining what I love, 'investing,' while fulfilling a promise.

The Free Bullion Investment Guide has three missions:

  • The 1st mission is to be an Honest place on the web that provides you with the Best Bullion Market Reference Material.

Design of the
1oz. Australian Silver Kookaburra Bullion Coin


The Silver Kookaburra is Australia's Perth Mint longest-running silver bullion coin series, and in 2020 it turned 30 years old.

To commemorate the silver bullion coin's landmark release, each coin features a special obverse bearing the original design of Stuart Devlin's depiction of a kookaburra on a tree stump surrounded by native foliage as it appeared on the reverse side of the 1990 Australian Kookaburra Silver Bullion Coin.

Above the inaugural (reverse) image of the Kookaburra bullion coin is the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, with the dates that mark the coin's 30th Anniversary 1990 - 2020.

Around the perimeter of the obverse side are the words "AUSTRALIA," "ELIZABETH II" and the 1oz silver bullion coin's face value of "1 DOLLAR."

The Edge of the silver bullion coin is Reeded.


Note: The first two years the 1 oz. Australian Kookaburra silver bullion coin was minted, it had a face value of "5 DOLLARS." From 1992 to the present day, the face value of the coin has been "1 DOLLAR."

The reverse side of the 1 oz. (troy) Australian Silver Kookaburra bullion coin unveils a new design of the Kookaburra, each year.

The 2020 Silver Kookaburra depicts the bird sitting near the edge of a roof, as the sun's raise streak across the sky, in the background.

The words "AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA" are inscribed across the top of the 1 oz silver bullion coin.

'30TH ANNIVERSARY' is inscribed at the bottom of the silver bullion coin to commemorate its anniversary.

Also inscribed along the perimeter of the silver bullion coin is its "Year of Issue," the coins weight of "1OZ," and its purity of "9999 SILVER."

The silver bullion coin has The Perth Mint's 'Mint Mark' of "P."

Lastly, the reverse was designed by Jennifer McKenna, her initials 'JM' can be seen behind the kookaburra, under the sun.


Note: From 1990 - 2007 the Silver Kookaburra bullion coin did not have a Mint Mark.
