Silver Ounce 2016 Australian Kookaburra, Coin from Australia - detailed information

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.

The Australian Silver Kookaburra series - to which this coin belongs - was introduced in 1990 by the Perth Mint; subsequently, the Royal Australian Mint also started issuing silver Kookaburra bullion coins. The coins 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. This and their limited annual mintage may, unlike for many other bullion coins, raise their numismatic value over the value of silver used.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2016 Australian Kookaburra - obverse photo

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 small 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 · 1 DOLLAR ·.

The background of the central circle is frosted.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 1 DOLLAR ·
Reverse

Within a plain border, the reverse design of the coin shows a kookaburra bird perched on a fence post in a rural landscape, its head raised in its famous laughter. At the base of the post, the designer's initials NM, for Natasha Muhl. In the left field, the Perth Mint's P mint mark.

The background of the central circle is frosted.

Around above in the rim, the name of the coin series: AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA. The date of issue and the precious metal content are around below: 2016 1oz 999 SILVER (one troy ounce of 99.9% silver).
