This impressive 5oz silver proof high relief coin features the 2017 Australian Kookaburra design showcasing one of Australia’s most distinct and unique species.
The Australian Kookaburra is the largest of the native kingfisher family and is known for its distinctive human-like laughing call. Affectionately known as the Laughing Kookaburra, these stunning birds can be found in most parts of eastern Australia.
The Australian Kookaburra is a well-known symbol of Australia and is instantly recognisable by its off-white chest and brown eye-stripe. Generally, the kookaburra will pair for life and rarely mate more than once each season.
This huge 5oz high relief coin features two kookaburras perched on a fence. The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the 2017 year-date. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 5oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. The coin comes presented in a classic display case within a themed shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
