The Australian Silver Kookaburra series from the Perth Mint began in 1990 and is the longest-running bullion program from the mint. Each year has a differing design of a kookaburra on the reverse. This bird species is indigenous to Australia and is known for their call, which is said to sound like echoing human laughter.

Not only are designs changed on the bullion coins each year, the Proof designs vary each year as well! Historically, the mintage of each 1 oz bullion Silver Kookaburra coin has been a maximum of 300,000 coins. However, in 2011 the maximum mintage was moved to 500,000 coins to accommodate the very high demand for this series. Compared to other Silver bullion series, this mintage is still very small and has helped ensure the collectibility of each coin.

The 2016 Australia 1 oz Kookaburra has inspired other Silver coins.

The 2016 Australia 1 oz Kookaburra is the 26th year of Australia’s longest running Silver bullion coin series. The Australian Kookaburra coins have been such a hit, the Silver coins have inspired other Australian coin series, including the Lunar series in 1996, the Koala series in 2007 and the Saltwater Crocodile series in 2014. The Silver coins come in a variety of different weights, but the 1 oz Silver coin mintage is always capped. Australian coins are beloved by collectors for capturing the world’s fascination with this exotic land and its unusual wildlife.

Invest in Australian Kookaburra coins with a Precious Metals IRA

The 2016 Australia 1 oz Silver Kookaburra can be invested in a Precious Metals IRA. The Australian Kookaburra coins are .999 fine Silver and legal tender, meeting the IRS requirements. Investing Silver coins in a Precious Metals IRA is considered by many investors a great way to diversify your retirement investments, gaining a physical asset that typically does not move in lock step with other investments. These Australian coins can help balance your portfolio and can provide a hedge against unstable markets and shocks to the economy.

The Silver Kookaburra series premiered in 1990 and is the longest-running bullion series from The Perth Mint.

Nice silver bird

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I was actually drawn to this coin by positive reviews from other silver stackers on YouTube. Praising it for it's attractive design that changes each year like the Chinese Panda (abet with a lower premium). As with the 1/10th oz Gold Kangaroos, these Silver kooks also come with their own capsule and removes the need to purchase a separate airtite for them.


  • Pros
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
