This new silver Kookaburra
from “Down Under” is the latest addition to Australia’s Bullion Coin Program. The 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 2017 issue two of the iconic birds are shown on an old wooden
fence. This “laughing bird” from Down Under features a call reminiscent of human
laughter. Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse.
