2020 $8 Australian Kookaburra 5oz Silver Proof Gilded High Relief Coin

This extraordinary 5oz silver proof gilded high relief coin celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Australian Kookaburra Proof Coin. Elements of this high relief design have been gilded in pink gold, superbly combining two celebrated minting techniques.

Known as the 'king of the bush', the kookaburra has been featured on The Perth Mint's silver coins since 1990. Delighting collectors with its range of creative annual designs highlighting the Australian icon, the Kookaburra coin series has developed over the past 30 years into a highly sought-after program renowned for outstanding quality and original artistry.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 5oz of 99.9% pore silver in proof quality and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 500 of the 2020 Australia Kookaburra 5oz Silver Proof Gilded High Relief Coins in this packaging.

The coins reverse features a kookaburra perched on a corrugated rooftop at dawn with stylised rays of light in the background. The rays are gilded in pink gold.

The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ Mintmark and the 2020 year-date.

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 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.

Each 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.
