Inscribed around the queen are markings for the country, the queen’s name and the minting year which reads “Elizabeth II Australia 2015.” Below her the coins 1 Dollar face value is listed.
The coin’s reverse features a brand new design of the Kookaburra, a famous native bird of Australia. These birds are known for their call which mimics human laughter. In this depiction, the bird is perched upon a tree stump facing right. Great attention has been paid to the details of the bird and one will notice that each of its feathers has been etched in great detail. Several leaves compliment the background. Surrounding this scene are inscriptions for the coin’s specifications which read “The Australian Kookaburra 1 oz .999 Silver 1990-2015.” These coins not only showcase one of Australia’s most famous native bird species, but also celebrate the coin’s 25th year of minting.

Since its founding as a branch of the Royal Mint of England towards the end of the 19th century, the Perth Mint has continuously been producing some of the finest coins in the world.
