2013 Discover Australia Kookaburra 1oz Silver Proof Coin

Availability: Sold Out

Code: 385

Known for its famous laughing call, the main purpose of the kookaburra’s cry is to communicate with other birds to inform them of its territory.

Staying within its own home range, the species mates for life and has a well-developed social system, which includes the protection and feeding of its young. This unique bird requires a large variety of food all year round, and lives in forests, open woodlands, parks, partially timbered farmlands, and even some suburbs and towns.

The coin’s reverse depicts a winged kookaburra against a coloured river scene at dawn. The inscriptions DISCOVER AUSTRALIA and KOOKABURRA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the 2013 year-date are also included in the design. The coin's obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of each 2013 Discover Australia 1oz silver proof coin, with an issue limit of 3,500 for each individual coin and 1,500 for the five-coin set.
