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 terrestrial tree kingfishers native to Australia and New Guinea and they grow from 11in. to 17in. in length. 

Their name originates from the Wiradjuri people of Australia.

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

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