The history of the 2016 Australia 10 oz Silver Kookaburra
The 2016 Australia 10 oz Silver Kookaburra is from the popular Silver coin series introduced in 1990 by the Perth Mint. Prior to minting Australian coins, the Perth Mint produced Gold Sovereigns as a colonial branch of Great Britain’s Royal Mint. The first Silver coins the Perth Mint issued were Silver Shillings in 1946, and later the mint introduced Palladium bullion in 1995 and Platinum bullion in 1998. This 10 oz Silver bullion coin continues the Perth Mint’s long history of producing fine Precious Metals bullion.
