In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the silver Kookaburra coin the Perth Mint is celebrating by featuring the original coin design from 1990. Each kookaburra also includes the years "1990 - 2015" and the traditional Perth "P" mintmark has had 25 added to it. These coins celebrate not only the heritage of the Perth and their twenty five years of mintage but also this iconic Australian bird. The Kookaburra has become one of the flagship coins for the Perth Mint over the years and it is easy to see why. The unique subject, the great quality and Australian character of these coins have catapulted them to the world stage.

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the words, "Elizabeth II Australia 2015 1 Dollar" and the artist's initials.

The reverse features the inaugural design of the 1990 Kookaburra silver coin. An adult kookaburra is perched on a tree trunk and is surrounded by eucalyptus leaves and ferns, all local to Australia. The design layout is the same as the original, but it has kept the improvements that the Perth Mint has added over the years to allow for even finer detail. A double year has been added to further help distinguish it from the original. Even the traditional Perth Mint mark has been changed by adding a 25. Finally, to celebrate the Chinese Lunar Year of the Goat a goat privy mark has been added just below the Kookaburra's beak.

The intricate detail of the kookaburra and its surroundings pay tribute to 25 years of craftsmanship. With a limited mintage of only 50000 goat privy Kookaburra's worldwide they won't be available for long. Get yours before they are gone!


The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint's 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
