big beautiful coin contains an ounce of investment grade .999 silver, making
it desirable both for silver content as well as numismatic value. And as an
added bonus, every year the renowned Perth Mint offers a new rendering of
the kookaburra, Australia’s engaging national bird. On this 2016 issue the
iconic bird is shown on a fence post wrapped with barbed wire. This “laughing
bird” from Down Under features a call reminiscent of human laughter. Queen
Elizabeth II graces the obverse.
