In 1990, the Perth Mint of Australia introduced a new series of silver coins depicting one of its native birds, the kookaburra. Since that debut, Australian Kookaburra silver coins have become one of the most popular annual series in existence.

To mark a quarter of a century since their introduction, the Perth Mint has released unique 25th anniversary editions in 1-ounce and 5-ounce sizes that are in collector proof quality and in high-relief to enhance their detail.

Silver Coin Design and Specifications

Normally on these coins, the kookaburra design changes annually. In celebration of the anniversary, however, these new silver coins feature the original 1990 design by Dr. Stuart Devlin. Inscribed around the scene are THE AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, 1 OZ. 999 SILVER and the date range of the program 1990-2015. In addition, a special ‘P25’ mintmark is used to reflect the 25th anniversary.

Offered on the obverse is the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Inscriptions include ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 2015 and the legal tender face value of the coins.


The 2015 25th Anniversary Kookaburra High Relief Silver Coins may be ordered from the Perth Mint via its website of www.perthmint.com.au.
