This extraordinary 2oz silver proof gilded high relief coin celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Australian Kookaburra Proof Coin. A first from The Perth Mint, elements of the high relief design have been gilded in 24-carat gold, superbly combining two celebrated minting techniques.
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 of the Australian Kookaburra 2020 2oz Silver Proof Gilded High Relief Coin worldwide.
The coin’s reverse design portrays a kookaburra perched on a corrugated rooftop at dawn with stylised rays of light in the background. The bird and outer ring of the coin are gilded in 24-carat gold. Also included is the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA 30TH ANNIVERSARY’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the weight and purity.
The obverse of the coin features a representation of Stuart Devlin’s depiction of a kookaburra perched on a tree branch, as it appeared on the 1990 Australian Kookaburra Silver Proof Coin. The outer ring of the obverse is also gilded in 24-carat gold. The anniversary dates ‘1990-2020’ and the monetary denomination are included together with a miniature representation of Jody Clark’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
The coin has been struck with an extra-deep blank to showcase its superbly detailed design in high relief.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with a special 30th anniversary illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
