The history of 1 oz Silver coins
Introduced in 1990, the 1 oz Silver coin is a legal tender coin issued under the Australian Currency Act of 1965. Though the Silver Kookaburra coin has a face value of $1 (AUD), its true value lies in its collectibility. The Australian coin series has become extremely popular among collectors over the past 25 years, and this Silver coin celebrates the series’ 25th anniversary. Mintage of the Silver bullion proof was limited to 8,000 coins in this packaging, with a maximum mintage of 10,000 proof coins overall.
Why invest in the 1 oz Silver coins?
Each Silver Kookaburra coin contains 1 troy oz of .999 fine Silver, but that is only a small part of what makes these Silver coins desirable to both investors and collectors. The limited mintage of the 1 oz Silver coins makes them attractive to investors who want Silver bullion that has added numismatic or collector value. As legal tender Australian coins, the Silver bullion is also guaranteed by the Australian government for Silver content and purity, and this guarantee gives investors peace of mind when adding Silver bullion to investment portfolios. Silver bullion, whether in the form of Silver coins or bars, is considered by many financial planners to add stability to traditional investment portfolios.
How do high relief 1 oz Silver coins differ from regular Silver coins?
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Silver Kookaburra coin series, these Silver coins were produced in high relief. Compare these 1 oz Silver coins to their traditionally-struck counterparts and you will notice that the design of the high relief coins stands out and reveals more details. When creating high relief Australian coins, the Perth Mint uses specially made high relief dies and extra thick blanks that are concave to allow the metal to flow properly. This Silver bullion is the fourth high relief coin released as part of the popular series, with the first high relief Silver Kookaburra being offered in 2012.
