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.
