There is something special about platinum and the 2022 1/10 oz Australian Platinum Kookaburra coin illustrates that point. The design looks stunning in .9995 fine platinum.

Starting in 1990 the Australian Kookaburra coin has been a hit. First released in silver only, they later added gold to the series and the coin has continued to be a highly sought after coin. Last year, the Perth Mint added platinum to the assortment of metals in the series. These platinum coins have sold very quickly so these are soon to be gone as well.
The obverse of the coin has the very popular Queen Elizabeth design created by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint in 2015. This image is a very detailed picture of the queen as she was at age 89. She is seated looking to the right and one can even see the crow’s feet around her eyes. She is wearing the diadem crown and royal jewels. Above her head is ‘QUEEN ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA’. At the bottom of the coin is ‘15 DOLLARS’.
One reverse of the coin is a picture of the Australian Kookaburra bird. This bird has become an icon of Australia like the kangaroo and the koala. The Kookaburra’s distinctive call has been featured in many movies that have a jungle in them. A kookaburra’s call sounds like a human laughing maniacally. This Kookaburra is perched on a branch. Above the bird is ‘AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA’. Below is ‘2022 1/10 oz 9995 PLATINUM’.
