1997 2 oz Australian Kookaburra Silver Coin

The famous silver coin collection Australian Kookaburra from the Perth Mint reached its 8th annual issuance in 1997.

Since its premiere, the Australian Kookaburras have been a top-selling silver coin displaying a unique design each year in varied size options.

2 oz coins tend to appeal to collectors looking for unusual coin sizes. They are double the weight of standard 1 oz collectible coins.

Investors who want to diversify their investment portfolios may be interested in having stunning silver pieces among their assets. These silver coins are 99.9% fine silver and are worth their weight in silver, based on the precious metal spot price.

  • Bears a 2-dollar face value and legal tender status;
  • 8th issue of the Australian Kookaburra Series;

The Design

The obverse design depicts Queen Elizabeth II’s third official effigy, created by Raphael Maklouf. The inscriptions encircling Her Majesty’s portrait read: “ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA,” and the coin’s face value of “2 DOLLARS.”

The reverse showcases two kookaburras which seem to be a mother and its cub in a nest. The coin’s series, weight, purity, metal content, and issuance surround the central image and read: “THE AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA 2 OZ .999 SILVER 1997.”
