The Australian Kookaburra Series launched in 1990 at Perth Mint. It was the first of what would become many annual release coins with images of native wildlife species. The hallmark of this series, and its companion collections, is the use of new reverse designs each year. Perth Mint has never repeated a design on the Australian Kookaburra Series. Since 1990, silver coins have been issued every year, with gold coins and now platinum coins also available.
Obverse imagery on the 2021 Australian Platinum Kookaburra features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed for the Royal Mint of England in 2015 by Jody Clark, this design shows the Queen in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. This is the sixth-generation effigy of the Queen to grace Australian coinage.
Reverse designs on the 2021 1/10 oz Australian Platinum Kookaburra Coin include the image of a kookaburra. The largest member of the kingfisher species, the kookaburra is closely associated with the Australian Outback, and its trademark call is consistently used in soundtracks capturing life in the Outback.
Perth Mint was founded in 1899 as a branch mint of the Royal Mint of England. Today, the mint is owned by the government of Western Australia and is one of the world’s preeminent refiners of gold and silver bullion.
