The 1 troy oz Kookaburra is produced by Australia’s Perth Mint as their primary silver bullion coin, which has a fineness of 999 (99.9% purity). These coins were first produced in 1990 to complement their existing bullion coinage. The 1oz Australian Kookaburras silver coins are classified and accepted as legal tender in Australia and have a face value of AUDS$1.
The 1 oz Australian Kookaburra silver coins have always been minted in relatively low numbers in comparison to other bullion silver coins of similar weight and fineness, however, the last 4 years have seen the highest production cap of 500,000 coins per annum.
To see all of the mintage caps and production rates for the 1oz Australian Kookaburra silver coin, look at the Perth Mint's production records. For the collectors amongst you, you will notice that 2004 had the lowest rate of production since that silver bullion series went into circulation.
