CoinSilver Two Ounces 2020 Australian Kookaburra

The Australian two ounces silver piece (abbreviated as 2 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.

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 2oz 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:
Our first gilded high relief coin, this remarkable 30th anniversary Kookaburra is a truly spectacular collectable. First issued by The Perth Mint in 1990, the Australian Kookaburra portrays a new impression of the famous bush bird each year.

With its unmistakable laughing call, the kookaburra is synonymous with Australia - from the outback to the back yard. This coin’s reverse depicts a kookaburra perched on a corrugated iron rooftop with stylised rays of the rising sun in the background. The noticeably raised motifs appear on a highly-polished concave surface. As well as the bird, the coin rim and its serrated edge are decorated in 24-carat gold - making this spectacular release a first-of-a-kind for The Perth Mint.

The coin has a special obverse featuring a representation of Stuart Devlin’s design for the original 1990 proof issue. His much-loved artistry, which portrays a kookaburra sitting on a tree branch amid gum leaves, appears below a miniature version of Jody Clark’s effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Two Ounces 2020 Australian Kookaburra - 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 · 2 DOLLARS ·.

The rim (as well as the whole edge) is gilded.
