The Silver Kookaburra is a silver bullion coin originating from Australia and produced at the Perth Mint. The coins are .999 fine silver. While the obverse of the coin always depicts Queen Elizabeth II, the reverse side changes every year, always featuring a kookaburra, a bird native to Australia. The Perth Mint's unbeatable minting experience and its use of advanced manufacturing technology contribute to the coins' reputation of being the highest quality in the world. Struck by the historic Perth Mint from .999 pure silver, each coin's Australian legal tender status guarantees its weight and purity. Perth Mint bullion coins are universally recognized as the most affordable means of purchasing silver bullion in the secure form of official, legal tender coins. Perth Mint bullion coins are tangible assets that are beautiful to behold. Featuring stunning new artistry each year, they are admired worldwide and are highly collectible. As well as annual design changes, the coins' restricted mintages create the potential for even greater investment return in the form of a numismatic premium.
