2017 Australia Silver Proof/BU Kookaburra 2-Coin Set

The Perth Mint has partnered with APMEX to produce just 1,000 of these spectacular two-coin sets featuring the iconic Kookaburra. This beautiful APMEXclusive® set contains two 2017 Silver Kookaburra coins in Proof and BU finishes.

The Proof Kookaburra is the prize of this set as this is the first time the Perth Mint has struck a 1 oz Proof Kookaburra with a matching design to the current BU coin. Previous Proof versions have been issued as specialty releases for select coin shows only. This set is a must-have for Perth collectors. The Proof Kookaburra can only be found in these exclusive sets and has a strict mintage of just 1,000 coins!

The BU coin comes in its standard Proof Like finish that is familiar to investors and collectors. The BU Kookaburra has always featured this Proof Like finish since its inception in 1990.

Set Highlights:

  • Extremely limited mintage of 1,000 sets exclusive to APMEX, this is the first set of its kind of the widely collected Kookaburra coin series.
  • Contains 2 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • This set comes to you in a beautiful box that perfectly houses both coins. The box comes with an outer sleeve as well.
  • Obverse: Bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse: Depicts two Kookaburras perched on a wooden fence. Exquisite quality is shown in this design, as the individual detail in the feathers as well as the old wooden fence bring this image to life.
  • Sovereign Silver coins backed by the Australian government.

This APMEXclusive® two-coin Australian Silver set has an extremely limited mintage of only 1,000 sets. This is the first year APMEX has partnered with the Perth Mint to release these special sets. Not only does this Silver Kookaburra set have a limited mintage, but it also features the special Proof Silver Kookaburra, which is only found in this 2-coin set. Each Proof Silver Kookaburra and BU Silver Kookaburra in this set contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.

The Australian Silver Kookaburra series from the Perth Mint began in 1990 and is the longest-running bullion program from the mint. Each year has a different design of a kookaburra on the reverse.

The laughing Kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species, and a bird synonymous with the Australian bush. This bird species is indigenous to Australia and is known for their call, which is said to sound like echoing human laughter.

I used to buy only coins minted here in the USA. But now, year after year I find myself buying more and more from Perth. The Aussies have some very talented engravers and sculptors which is clearly reflected in the caliber of their craftsmanship. My favorites have been their Lunar Year series, Platinum Platypus, and their Wedge Tailed Eagle series where they enlisted wonderful talent of our chief engraver J. Mercanti, which I consider his best work. Now, with this set, I have a new addition to my favorites list.

These coins are beautiful! I love both of them but the proof coin is my favorite. The display box is not as good as I thought it would be from the Perth mint but it displays them nicely. I think I'm going to buy another one. Thanks Apmex for perfect packaging and fast shipping! You're the best!!!
