Silver Ounce 2020 Australian Kookaburra, High Relief, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2020 Australian Kookaburra, High Relief

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 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.

This 1oz silver proof high relief 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 designs on each side are enhanced by the crisp details of a high relief strike.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2020 Australian Kookaburra, High Relief - obverse photo

At the centre of the obverse is a depiction of the first coins of the Australian Kookaburra series, showing the bird perched on the branch of an Australian eucalyptus tree.

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 · 1 DOLLAR ·.

Reverse

The reverse of the coin depicts a laughing Australian kookaburra perched on a corrugated iron roof, under the stylised rays of the rising sun just showing above the roof top.

The designer's initials JM (for Jennifer McKenna) are to the right of the bird. Below left, the Perth Mint's traditional P mint mark.

Around above, the name of the coin series: AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA.

Around below, the inscription 30TH ANNIVERSARY; around below right, the precious metal content: 1oz 9999 SILVER (one troy ounce of 99.99% silver).
