The 2018 Silver Kookaburra struck by the Perth Mint in Australia continues a traditional coin design (like the Chinese Panda), which was begun in 1990. The Kookaburra has become so popular because the design changes every year, along with Privy marked pieces struck for special occasions. Collectors will enjoy the beautiful image of a kookaburra bird “sitting in the old gum tree” as the Aussie children’s song goes. The front of the 2018 silver Kookaburra features a single kookaburra sitting on a fence pole wrapped in barbed wire, contentedly singing his heart out in the middle of the bush. Each contains the ‘P’ mintmark for the Perth Mint, which began striking gold sovereigns in 1899, and has become one of the top-rated mints in the world for quality and design. The higher premiums are well worth the striking quality of the coins and Government issued capsules, and each year, eager collectors await the next design in the series.
