The Kookaburra, which is native to Australia and New Guinea, are characterized by their large heads, stout bodies, prominent eyes, and a large bill. In nature, they are distinguished by their easily recognizable call, which mimics human laughter. Minted since 1990, the top-rated Kookaburra series contains 9999 fine silver and has featured the lovable avian in various poses since then. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970.Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst one of the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide. These are value coins - weight and purity are guaranteed but condition and design may vary (or items may be identical). The coin you receive may be tarnished or in "used" condition.
