The history of the 2016 Australia 10 oz Silver Kookaburra

The 2016 Australia 10 oz Silver Kookaburra is the latest edition 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.

Why invest in the 2016 Australia 10 oz Silver Kookaburra?

10 oz Silver Kookaburra’s represent the best of both worlds when it comes to collecting and investing. Many find the Australian coins appealing because they provide a way to invest in 10 troy ounces of .999 fine Silver at a price that is close to the Silver spot price. The 10 oz Silver bullion is backed by the Australian government, making it ideal for those who prefer sovereign Silver coins. Because the attractive Silver coin design changes annually, the Silver bullion has the added value of collectibility.

Invest in the 2016 Australia 10 oz Silver Kookaburra, and add it to your retirement portfolio.

Buy 2016 Australia 10 oz Silver Kookaburra coins, and add stability to your retirement portfolio with the Precious Metal. Because the Australian coins meet the fineness requirements for Precious Metals IRAs, the bullion coins are ideal for this kind of investment. The IRS requires that Silver coins and other IRA-approved Precious Metals are kept in a custodian account, so if you do not already have a custodian account, set one up by either choosing from the list of custodians that APMEX has working relationships with or seeking out one of your own. Many investors add 10 oz Silver bullion to their Precious Metals IRAs because historically the purchasing power of Silver tends to remain stable when paper currency and other traditional investments do not.

By  John

Great coin, the only downside is some the coins came with scratches. it takes weeks to replace and they wont say they can give me one with no scratches, that they came from mint that way. The spot price is low, not much more than a silver bar

Pros

The 2016 Australia 10 oz Silver Kookaburra is a very nice coin. At this price it is only a little more than a 10 oz bar, and has greater potential value to collectors. Plastic case was cracked.

Beautiful coin

The Kookaburra series, (I have both 1oz &10oz) are beautiful coins that even when spot price drops maintain or gain value. In the 1oz variety I love the Privy Kookaburras. Service is outstanding, sell back of other coins has been hassle free. I've not sold my Kooks yet. Delivery is timely, packaging is great. I love this product and APMEX.

The design and size of the coin impressed me. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and plan to pick up several more from this point on. This 10 oz coin exceeded all my expectations. The coin arrived inside a plastic cover for protection. The wrapping and box was secure and arrive very fast.

Beautiful coin

By  Herbie

This is a great way to buy silver and have a work of art at the same time. The 10 oz. size is just right, better than the kilo in my opinion. The plastic capsule keeps the coin in mint condition, and it looks better than a piece of plastic shrink wrap. I also own 10 oz. bars but I will buy the kooks from now on. Much prettier.

It's easy to decide on a buy if it is from APMEX. I know the product will be as stated and the packaging is above outstanding. It takes all the worry about the purchase from this company.

An Excellent Coin

By  Turophile

I purchased one of these 10 oz Kookaburras as an attractive item for hoarding more silver. The coin is very impressive in its size and design, and mine came in a plastic capsule within a sealed plastic bag, so it's packaged nicely as well. I would certainly recommend adding at least one of these to your collection; I'll probably have to get a few more in the near future.

One of my favorite coins simply because at 10 oz., the beauty of the coin is so simple to see and it is beautiful. Great weight, will add the kilo if it becomes available. Not to rich above spot for exceptional value and collectability if they keep the mintage low (not sure what it is yet). APMEX is again a leader in this weight class of coins of BU and Proofs.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
