Available now for over 20 years, the Perth Mint has created yet another unique design for their 2013 Australian Kookaburra Silver Coin. Like only a handful of other bullion coins around the world, the Kookaburra features a new reverse design each year.
Design changes are not the only reason these coins are sought after every year. Minted from 99.9% pure silver, these bullion coins initially sell for only a small premium over the value of the silver they contain. This makes them ideal not only for collectors, but also for precious metal investors.
The Kookaburra bird itself is indigenous to Australia and New Guinea. A carnivorous creature by nature, they feast on other animals like snakes, mice, insects, other birds, etc. Their habitat is also as varied, surviving in locations from humid rain forests to dry savannas. Some more social varieties are even known to steal meat off of picnic tables or backyard barbeques.
What really sets the Kookaburra bird apart from others is its unique call. Most compare it eerily to loud human laughter. As such, it has wound its way into the movies and television, and people seldom forget the call once they have heard it.
