Add These Iconic Animals to Your Collection
Around the world, Australia is known for its unique wildlife. It makes sense then, that two of the most popular series from the country's largest mint feature two examples of such wildlife: Kookaburras and koalas.
Introduced in 1990, the Silver Kookaburra series has continued to captivate investors and collectors for its yearly changing designs showcasing one of the most iconic Australian animals. In 2018, The Perth Mint increased the coin's .999 fine Silver content to .9999 fine Silver, furthering the appeal of the series.
In addition to varying sizes, from 1 oz up to 1 kilo, The Perth Mint also releases different finishes as well as Silver Kookaburras with privy marks celebrating the Chinese Lunar Calendar. These varieties create more opportunity for collectors.
In 2007, The Perth Mint introduced the Silver Koala series. Similar to the Kookaburras, the Koala design changes annually to honor this animal that is so strongly associated with Australia. The latest release depicts a koala occupying a tree branch with its fur and sharp claws finely detailed. Each 2019 coin also features its weight and .9999 fine purity. The obverse features a new Jody Clark effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.

This process guarantees the coins are delivered to you in the same condition as when they left the mint. Each coin is sealed within protective plastic immediately upon removal from mint-sealed boxes.
