CoinSilver Ounce 2014 Australian Kookaburra - Coloured

The Australian one ounce silver piece (abbreviated as 1 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion and commemorative 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.

This coin is part of the Perth Mint Australian Kookaburra bullion coin series and was issued as a Melbourne ANDA Coin Show Special.

The Mint says about it:
"The Australian kookaburra is fondly known for its distinctive call which sounds similar to human laughter, and can be heard echoing through the trees at dawn and dusk. The reverse of the kookaburra coin features a vibrant colour image of a young kookaburra perched on a tree branch sheltered by leaves. Each coin is housed in a grey display case, within an illustrated shipper featuring the ANDA logo alongside the dates of the Melbourne show."

As with other bullion coins by the Perth Mint, this coin has overall weight slightly more than a troy ounce so that it can have exactly 1.000 oz ASW (one ounce of Absolute Silver Weight).

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2014 · 1 DOLLAR ·.
