Perth Mint’s Silver Kookaburra Coin was first released in 1990. It quickly became a popular series and collectors know that they can expect a new design with every issue. This year’s design was designed by Aleysha Howarth. While there is an unlimited mintage on this coin, this is the only year you can get Howarth’s design.
The obverse side of the coin features Australia’s Kookaburra bird, a bird that is iconic to Australia and is known for its distinctive call that sounds like maniacal laughter. Howarth’s beautiful design shows the bird perched on a gum tree with seedpods underneath. Arched above the image is written ‘Australian Kookaburra’. Inside these words is a microscopic symbol as an anti-counterfeit measure. Below the image is ‘2021 10oz 9999 Silver’.
The Perth Mint has been minting coins since its inception in 1899 as another location for the Royal Mint of England. Since then, they have demonstrated master craftsmanship that has come with experience. Steeped in the traditional way of minting coins, the mint has shown that they can learn new tricks in their use of color and gilding. Along the way, they have moved from a mint that makes legal tender for Australia to a mint that accomplishes this task but also sets trends in their bullion coin creations.
