Purchasing Australian Silver Coins
Australian Silver Coins have lately become some of the most desirable silver bullion coins on the market. Almost all Australian bullion coins are manufactured by the Perth Mint, located in Western Australia. Established in 1899 as a branch of the Royal Mint in London, for decades the Perth Mint produced coins for the British Empire. In 1987, the Australian Established the Gold Corporation, which has a unique arrangement with the Australian Department of the Treasury to produce, sell, and promote precious metals coins and bars for the world bullion market. The Perth Mint is the primary manufacturer of all Australian bullion products, and the Australian Silver Coins produced at the mint have become some of the most collectible pieces in the world. Common characteristics of all Australian Silver coins are high silver content (99.9%), a nominal face value, legal tender status within Australia, and full guarantee and backing of the Perth Mint.
Australian Silver Kookaburra
The Silver Kookaburra is the first of the Australian Silver bullion coins, first appearing in 1990. Unusually for a bullion coin, the coin features a Kookaburra design which changes yearly, though the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse remains unaltered. Though minted in four different sizes, the 1 Ounce Silver Kookaburra remains the most popular denomination. 1/2 Ounce Silver Kookaburras and 10 Ounce Silver Kookaburras are also popular, while the large 1 Kilogram Silver Kookaburra is rare and the domain of serious investors who buy silver bullion coins online.
Australian Silver Koala
The Australian Silver Koala is relatively a newcomer, first appearing in 2007. Similar to the Kookaburra, the Silver Koala is produced in different weights and denominations, including a 1/2 ounce Koala, as well as a 1 Ounce Silver Koala, 10 Ounce Silver Koala, and even a huge 1 Kilogram Silver Koala. Although a newer coin, the remarkable imagery of the Koala design has made them immediately popular with collectors and investors. The Perth Mint also keeps annual production low, occasionally making it difficult to buy Silver Koala coins but adding some numismatic and collectible value to each piece.
Australian Silver Lunar Series
The Perth Mint also produces a Silver Lunar Series which features annually-changing designs on a 12 year cycle. The enormous popularity of Lunar Series 1 ensured the continuation of this series, and Lunar Series 2 was begun in 2008. Minted in 1/2 ounce, 1 ounce, and 2 Ounce Silver Lunar sizes, production numbers are also kept low and these coins quickly sell out. Demand from both collectors and investors is always high.

Australian silver coins also have low premiums, so they tend to trade closer to the current silver spot price than other world silver coins.
