The 2012 Australian Kookaburras were released on the 1st September 2011. This is an investment product.
Australia first issued a one ounce silver bullion coin in 1990. It followed the series of Australian native fauna, which began with the platinum Koala in 1988, and the gold nugget coins changing to a kangaroo design in 1989. When introduced in 1990, the 300,000 issue limit of the Kookaburras was oversubscribed by more than five times, and supplies ran out on the first day of issue. The Kookaburra is the only major silver bullion coin which changes its exact design every year, making it also more attractive to collectors, although the kookaburra theme remains the same. In 1992, the Perth Mint introduced large silver bullion coins, in weights of two ounce, ten ounces and one kilogramme (32.15 ounces). Initially these were produced as proofs or specimens only, but are now available in a non-proof version. Originally the large silver coins retained the same design each year, but now they too have a different kookaburra design each year.
Gold investment products are VAT free. Silver investment products are inclusive of VAT at the current rate unless otherwise stated.
All investment products are based on the live precious metal price. Prices will be fixed once the item has been added to the basket and re calculates just before checking out.
If your product is not a graded coin and is considered a bullion item it should be noted that these are bought and sold on low premiums over their precious metal content and not solely for aesthetic purposes, therefore some products may have edge knocks and/or marks. These edge knocks and marks do not alter the specifications of the coins.
Please note that all investment products are exempt from the Distance Selling Regulation and therefore customers do not have the right to cancel their order once the order has been accepted. If customers no longer wish to go ahead with their investment purchase, there is an option to sell the products back to Chard (1964) Ltd instead. You can view our current buy back prices here.
