  • Description:

    The Kookaburra is a beautiful and striking bird that isn't scared of humans. The colors that are on the feathers of these birds are determined by the gender of the bird. Kookaburras mate for life and both adults take part in raising their young. The most known fact about the kookaburra is its call. The kookaburra's call strikingly resembles human laughter, a cackling laughter. This may seem frightening but locals are way past used to it. Being native to Australia's eucalyptus forests, the kookaburra bird was chosen as the featured animal for a bullion coin collection started in 1990. This promising collection was first produced by the Perth Mint and has taken over household collections worldwide. The Perth Mint is the oldest working mint in Australia, earning its well-earned reputation along the way. The Perth Mint designed the Kookaburra series to contain different sizes: one ounce, two ounce, five ounce, and ten ounce. The larger the coin becomes, the smaller the mintage and the better the surface area to admire the amazing detail work.

    Your 2003 Silver Kookaburra Two Ounce is one of 16,663 coins minted and is guaranteed to be forged from .999 pure silver. The Perth Mint kindly packages all of its coins into airtight capsules for proper protection against scratching and tarnishing. Your coin sparkles with the "freshly minted" brilliant uncirculated finish but also displays a proof-like luster as well.
