History

The Kookaburra silver coin program was introduced in 1990 by the Perth Mint. In 1991 the mint added the 2oz, 10oz and 1 kg sizes to the series. However, the 2oz Kookaburra was discontinued after 2009.

Due to the yearly design changes, the Kookaburra is also appealing to collectors who want to own each year in the series. The only years when the design did not change were in 1991 and 1992, when the the motif was the same as 1990.

Australian Kookaburras are the largest member of the kingfisher species of birds and are located in eastern Australia. The bird has a loud distinctive call that resembles human laughter. The birds are often referred to as “Laughing Kookaburras”.

Note the Mintmark "P" which stands for Perth Mint, on the right side of the silver coin.
