Kookaburra Mintage Policy Update

Topics [ Australian Kangaroo silver bullion coins Australian Lunar Australian Koala gold bullion coins Australian Kookaburra ]


I announced details of our new Mintage Policy in November. There has been an update to the information I provided then, which I’d like to inform you about now.

Previously I said that the Mint reserved the right to manufacture each 1oz release from the Australian Kookaburra silver bullion coin series up to its individual maximum mintage.

What others have called a “re-striking”, however, no longer applies.

Having listened to a great deal of customer feedback, the policy has been amended so that we will no longer be making past 1oz Kookaburras that undersold their maximum mintage.

As a result, we have closed production and declared final mintages for all 1oz Kookaburras and other unlimited denominations released between 1990 and 2012. We have published the figures in the following document:

 • The Australian Kookaburra Silver Bullion Coin Series 1990-2013

Please refer to these recently updated documents for further declared mintages:

 • The Australian Koala Silver Bullion Coin Series 2007 – 2013

 • The Australian Lunar Silver Bullion Series Two 2008 – 2013

 • The Australian Lunar Gold Bullion Series Two 2008 – 2013

These documents can be found on our corporate website under Bullion Mintages.
