Product Details


This beautiful silver coin is the latest addition to the longest running Perth mint silver bullion coin series, the Australian silver Kookaburra series which saw its first release in 1990.


  • Ships individually in protective packaging
  • Consisting of 1 oz of 9999 Fine Silver
  • Obverse: Features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark along with the legal tender value, and the country of issue
  • Reverse: Features a depiction of a Kookaburra bird flying ahead of the full moon, the mint's mark, the year of the issue along with the metal weight, type and purity

The coin’s reverse feature is a laughing Kookaburra on the wing; these Outback birds are so named for their call, which mimics the sound of human laughter. On the reverse field a huge full moon is visible and the entire feature is encircled by the coin’s title, its year of issue, weight and 9999 silver purity.

The obverse portrait is that of Her Majesty the Queen, as crafted by Ian Rank-Broadley, complete with the finest details, down to the individual jewels of her crown. The obverse image is framed by the Her Majesty’s name as well as the denomination of the coin.

With females of the species weighing up to 1 pound and reaching 18 inches in length, the laughing Kookaburra is the largest Kingfisher species in existence. Add one of these heavyweights to your collection today when you order your 1 oz 2018 Australian Kookaburra silver coin.


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.
