CoinSilver Kilo 2020 Australian Kookaburra

The Australian one kilogram silver piece (abbreviated as 1kg and designated with Ag for "silver") is a massive bullion and commemorative coin format used mostly by the Perth Mint, which only makes collector and bullion coins and other bullion products.

The Australian Silver Kookaburra series was introduced in 1990 by the Perth Mint in the silver one-ounce format. Subsequently, the range was expanded in 1991 to also include 2oz silver, 10oz silver and 1 kg silver; much later, gold formats were also introduced. The Perth Mint issued a "bullion" and a "proof" two-ounce kookaburras with differing designs every year until 2009; after that, all issues are "numismatic" - not bullion but premium, like high relief and/or gold plated editions.

The coins in the series have legal tender status in Australia and are one of very few legal tender bullion silver coins to change their design every year, always featuring a kookaburra - a bird native to Australia, which is the largest member of the kingfisher family and the national bird of Australia. This and their limited annual mintage may, unlike for many other bullion coins, raise their numismatic value over the value of silver used.

The overall weight is slightly more than one kilogram so that the coins have exactly 1,000 grams of pure silver in them (32.15 Troy Oz).

This 1 kg silver bullion coin is part of the 30th Anniversary of the Australian Kookaburra coin range by the Perth Mint.

The Mint says about it:
A laughing kookaburra, the largest member of the kingfisher species, is synonymous with the Australian outback. This spectacular 30th anniversary coin includes a special anniversary obverse design.

The coin’s reverse depicts a kookaburra perched on a roof at dawn with stylised rays of light in the background. The obverse bears Stuart Devlin’s depiction of a kookaburra on a tree stump surrounded by native foliage, as it appeared on The Perth Mint’s 1990 Australian Kookaburra Silver Bullion Coin.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Kilo 2020 Australian Kookaburra - obverse photo

At the centre of the obverse is a depiction of the first coins of the Australian Kookaburra series, showing the bird on a tree stump surrounded by native foliage.

In a small circle above that is 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).

Between the two circles, on the left and right, the anniversary dates of the coin series, 1990 and 2020.

Around the rim, interrupted by the Queen's portrait, the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 30 DOLLARS ·.
