CoinSilver Two Kilos 2020 Australian Kookaburra

The Australian two kilos silver piece (abbreviated as 2 kg and designated with Ag for "silver") is a very large bullion 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.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This 2 Kilo Silver Antiqued High Relief Coin is part of the 30th Anniversary of the Australian Kookaburra coin range by the Perth Mint; it is the only one in the range with this reverse design.

The Mint says about it:
Known as Australia’s "king of the bush", kookaburras are also popular inhabitants of urban areas, including national parks and botanical gardens full of incredible native flora and fauna. Occupying the same territories year-round, family groups take up residence in woodlands, open forests and even suburban areas of some Australian capital cities, including the iconic inner-city parkland in Perth portrayed on the reverse of this spectacular coin.

The coin’s reverse depicts a kookaburra flying in Perth’s Kings Park, an area comprising 400 hectares of open space on the edge of the central business district, with the city skyline in the background.

The coins are individually edge-numbered from 1 to 200.

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 · 60 DOLLARS ·.

The background of the rim is a guilloché pattern.
