CoinGold Tenth-Ounce 2021 Australian Kookaburra

The Australian tenth-ounce gold piece (abbreviated as 1/10 oz and designated with Au for "gold") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

More than 30 years old and as strong as ever, the Perth Mint's Australian Kookaburra is an iconic coin series featuring annual designs of one of Australia’s most recognisable birds. The kookaburra can be heard hollering its distinctive laughing call across Australia - from the outback to the backyard.

In 2021, the series offers investors an additional opportunity in the form of a limited mintage 1/10oz coin struck from 99.99% pure gold.

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown and the Victoria Coronation necklace worn for her Coronation. This is her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide and "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, in "uncouped" version - showing the Queen's shoulders and not terminating at the neck as the normal version.

On the left, in small letters on the Queen's shoulder, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 15 DOLLARS ·.
