Final Proof Issue

Highly regarded and avidly collected around the world since 1990, the Proof Issue of the Australian Kookaburra Silver Coin Series is being issued for the final time in 2005.

Innovative use of Colour

In celebration of the enduring popularity of these iconic coins, the final Proof Issue features the innovative use of colour on all 'kookaburra' reverses.

Last Evolution Series Coin

The 2005 Proof Issue includes the fifth Evolution 10oz coin, concluding this high profile companion series characterized by stunningly original designs.

Popular Square Kookaburra

Once again, the 1/2oz coin has been struck in the highly popular square-shaped format, resembling Australia's historic kookaburra pattern pennies of 1919 - 1921.

Leatherette Presentation Case

This Five-Coin Set, comprising a kilo, 10oz, 2oz, 1oz and 1/2oz coin, is housed in a plush red leatherette presentation case, which comes in a specially designed outer sleeve depicting the silhouettes of two kookaburras.

Proof Quality 99.9 % Pure Silver

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver in stunning proof quality.

Traditional 'P' mintmark

The reverse design also features the traditional Perth Mint 'P' mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as lawful currency of Australia, the coin's obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

New Reverse Designs

The design for 2005-dated Proof Kookaburra coins (with the exception of the 10oz coin) depicts two kookaburras perched on a tree branch against a coloured background.

The design of the 10oz Evolution companion series coin symbolizes man's timeless pursuit of knowledge. It portrays coloured images of a space telescope, stars, galaxies, nebulas, comets and gaseous clouds, surrounding an image of a man standing inside the basic geometric shapes - a square, a circle and a triangle. The coin also depicts earth and incorporates the inscription EVOLUTION OF KNOWLEDGE.

Certificate of Authenticity

Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Strictly Limited Release
