The combination of the animals from the Lunar Series collections at Perth Mint and its annual Australian Kookaburra release is a popular, collectible silver coin. The Year of the Dog is the 11th in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac and represents those who are loyal, honest, kind, and cautious.


On the obverse side of 2018 Australian Kookaburra Silver Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This effigy of the Queen was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley and first appeared on coins from the Royal Mint of England. The image shows the Queen in right-profile relief with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on her head. The effigy includes inscriptions of ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 1 DOLLAR.


The reverse field of the 2018 Australian Kookaburra Dog Privy Silver Coins features designs honoring both the kookaburra and the Year of the Dog on the Chinese lunar calendar. The center of the design field focuses on a kookaburra flying through the design element with its wings flapped back behind its head. In the background field, you will notice a small, circular privy mark with the image of a Labrador honoring the Year of the Dog. The inscriptions read AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, 2018 1 OZ 9999 SILVER, and the P mint mark of Perth Mint.


Introduced in 1990, the Australian Kookaburra was issued annually with .999 pure silver from 1990 to 2017. Starting in 2018, the mint increased the purity of the coins to .9999 pure silver content.


These 2018 Australian Kookaburra Dog Privy 1 oz Silver Coins are available to purchase in plastic capsules. The coins have a Year of the Dog privy on the reverse field and are limited in mintage to just 50,000 coins in total.
