The history of the Kookaburra Silver coins
The Kookaburra is one of many APMEX Silver coins for sale but what is special about this coin is that the Kookaburra celebrates its 25th anniversary of the Silver coin series by reproducing Dr. Stuart Devlin’s original Kookaburra design from 1990. Unlike the 1990 1 oz Silver Kookaburra, the obverse features the newer depiction of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley rather than Raphael Maklouf’s version. The popularity of the Silver coins series eventually led the Perth Mint to launch other theme-focused Silver bullion programs such as the Australian Silver Koala and the Lunar I and II series. Many consider the Silver bullion coins to be the most beautiful coins on the market.
