The Perth Mint is recognized throughout the world for their superior quality, superb artistry and Australian government guarantee of weight and purity. These magnificent pure silver coins coins have a superior quality finish which incorporates delicate, proof-like frosting within the central design. The Australian Kookaburra Silver Coins were first issued in 1990 and have been featuring a new design of the Laughing Kookaburra annually ever since.
The reverse design features a Kookaburra perched on a large branch facing to the right. Over the bird are the words 'Australian Kookaburra', while underneath is '2010,' the coins size, and '999 Silver.' Surrounding the Ian Rank-Broadley image of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse is 'Elizabeth II,' 'Australia' and the '1 Dollar' denomination of the coin.
The Kookaburra is probably the best known bird of Australia. Indigenous to Australia, these birds are famous for their unmistakable call, which sounds uncannily like loud, echoing human laughter; good-natured, if rather hysterical, merriment in the case of the Laughing Kookaburra, the largest member of the Kingfisher family.
