  • Description:

    The kookaburra is a bird indigenous to Australia that exhibits quite a unique call. Locals have deemed the kookaburra's call representative of human laughter and depending on which type of kookaburra, the laughs are different. Kookaburras are also carnivores wherein they prey on small rodents, baby birds, reptiles, and insects. There have even been accounts of kookaburras taking meat straight off of a barbecue. This incredibly interesting bird has earned itself a spot on the reverse of the Silver Kookaburra series with different designs of the kookaburra. Your 2001 Silver Kookaburra is guaranteed, by the Perth Mint, to be one full ounce of .999 pure silver and comes in its original mint-sealed capsule. The Perth Mint also plays with the finish that is supposed to be brilliant uncirculated but resembles a flawless proof coin.

    Two smaller kookaburras are featured on the reverse side of the 2001 kookaburra. The birds are both perched on the same eucalyptus branch but facing back to back. The reverse is also stamped with the title of the coin series, the coin's purity and authenticity, and the year of mintage. The obverse reveals an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and her elegant crown. The monarch of the Commonwealth of Nations is naturally depicted, her facial lines and wrinkles included. This was an attempt at honoring the Queen's maturity instead of hiding it, which so many artists have done. In order for a coin to be called a coin, it needs to receive a legal tender value. The Silver Kookaburra one ounce coins bear the value of 1 dollar in Australia. The Silver Kookaburra series makes it easy if you are searching for bullion that carries numismatic value along with history and incredible craftsmanship. You can also enjoy the series for yourself and take pride that you own a prestigious collection from a reputable mint!
