Silver Ounce 2021 Australian Kookaburra, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Australian Kookaburra

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.

More than 30 years old and as strong as ever, the 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 beady-eyed character appears for the 32nd time on the Australian Kookaburra Silver Bullion Coin Series by the Perth Mint. Portraying the much-loved bird surveying the landscape from a tree branch, the classic artistry includes decorative embellishments comprising gum leaves and seedpods.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2021 Australian Kookaburra - obverse photo

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 · 1 DOLLAR ·.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 1 DOLLAR ·
Reverse
