Australia’s Perth Mint established a new security feature for all of its coins. The 2021 Australia 1 Oz Silver Kookaburra Coin features this new element, which comes in the form of a microscopic letter on the coin face. This makes it almost impossible for counterfeiters to create replicas of this coin. Needless to say, this security feature adds to the already safe investment coming out of coins minted by the Perth Mint.
The iconic Kookaburra has a relatively long history within Perth Mint. The mint has produced different versions of the Silver Kookaburra Coin since 1990, making this the 32nd consecutive edition of the collectable coin. This is always a good sign; consistent coin design categories provide investors and bullion collectors something to look forward to and collect once per year.
As always, these coins are distributed directly from the Perth Mint and are completely uncirculated. Hero Bullion takes great care to ensure that the coins arrive to customers with no blemishes, scuffs, scratches, or other imperfections. We package and ship our coins in the original Perth acrylic capsules, as well as bubble wrap and additional packaging to prevent damage during shipment.
Collectors who have never gotten their hands on one of Perth Mint’s Silver Kookaburra Coins might consider beginning their collection this year. Each year, Perth Mint creates a limited number of these coins. This year, the mint is capped at 500,000 total coins. As time passes, fewer and fewer of these coins will be available within the bullion collector community. In the long-term, this is a guaranteed recipe for retaining or gaining value over time.
The annual release of the Silver Kookaburra Coin by the Perth Mint has become an anticipated event for fans of Australian history, imagery, and bullion. Aside from its backing by the Australian government and its function as Australian legal tender, the coin’s intricate design, counterfeit prevention measures, and pure silver composition make it likely to retain value for years to come.
