- Why Buy Silver
The Perth Mint has issued a strict mintage cap of 50,000 coins, which limits the amount of these coins in circulation. As a comparison, the regular 1 oz Silver Kookaburra has a mintage of 500,000 coins and other bullion coins such as the Silver Maple and Silver Eagle have mintages in the tens of millions each year.
- Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
- Packaged individually in a plastic capsule. Quantities of 20 come in sealed rolls from the mint, with 100 coins (5 rolls) per cardboard box. Master cartons of 300 contain 3 boxes of 100 coins.
- Obverse: Displays the Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
- Reverse: Depicts two Kookaburras perched on a wooden fence along with a rooster privy mark. Exquisite quality is shown in this design, as the individual detail in the feathers as well as the old wooden fence bring this image to life.
- Sovereign coin backed by the Australian government.

The Perth Mint began issuing Kookaburra coins with a Lunar Privy mark in 2012. The Silver Kookaburra series has been incredibly popular in its own right, establishing a wide base of collectors across the world. This ensures that these coins are easily traded no matter the year!
Privy marks are distinguishing marks, often small, applied to more widely traded bullion coins to make a unique coin that is often in high demand. This coin has a small rooster privy mark (for the Lunar Year of the Rooster) in the middle of the iconic Kookaburra coin. With a mintage of only 50,000 coins, this makes the Kookaburra Privy extremely collectible as a Silver bullion coin. Prior year Privy Kookaburras, such as the Goat Privy, Horse Privy, Snake Privy and Dragon Privy, all have remained in high demand as supply dwindles over time and fewer are being offered for sale in the market place.
Preserve the Value of Silver KookaburrasWhen you purchase Silver Kookaburras, you can feel confident that your purchase will not only retain its value, but may even appreciate over time. One of the primary indicators of the value of these Silver coins is the Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) designation. This reflects the extremely low rate of handling these coins have experienced. Many times, BU coins have gone straight from production to storage. This means that these Silver coins have impressive luster and sharp relief.
In addition, these Silver coins each bear a unique privy mark honoring a variety of topics, from Chinese zodiac signs to popular U.S. coinage, which increases the collectibility. The Perth Mint caps the mintage for all privy marks, anywhere from 50,000 to just 10,000 coins.
All Kookaburra Silver Privy Mark Coins arrive encapsulated in plastic to preserve their appearance and value. Consider displaying yours in a specially designed presentation box alongside a Silver Kangaroo or a Silver Koala for an impressive array of high-value Perth Mint Silver coins.
A Privy Mark exclusive with a limited mintage of 50k. When it's gone, it's gone. 2014 investors have already made 4x their premium. Learn more.
