2018 $2 Kookaburra High Relief 2oz Silver Antiqued Coin
Depicting a kookaburra flying in Perth’s Kings Park with the city skyline in the background, this Perth Mint silver coin is beautiful. Perhaps Australia's most famous bird, mostly due to its distinctive 'laughing' call, the Kookaburra is also the largest in the Kingfisher family and thus makes a wonderful subject for a precious metal collectable.
Struck from two ounces of 99.99% pure silver, each coin is issued in a 'piedfort' format - that means double the thickness! Twice the girth of a regular 40.6mm coin, this Australian legal tender issue has high relief and has been antique-finished, to bring out the high points of the design.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver, no more than 2,000 of the Kookaburra 2018 2oz Silver Coin will be released.
