Silver Two Ounce Unc Privy Mark

A hugely popular privy mark honouring the Perth Mint's support for a very worthwhile cause.


Although to most folks a lot of the Perth Mint silver kookaburras all look the same, discerning collectors know otherwise. One of the ways that these coins can be distinguished is by looking for a "privy mark”.

A privy mark was originally a small mark or differentiation in the design of a coin for the purpose of identifying the mint, moneyer, or some other aspect of the coin's production or origin, for quality control purposes. The Perth Mint uses privy marks slightly differently - they are used to commemorate a particular event, theme or occasion.

This privy mark is a silver inlay of World Vision's 40 Hour Famine logo. 1995 marked the 20th anniversary of this very popular and worthwhile fundraising event, and all profits from the Perth Mint's sale of these coins were donated to World Vision.

Unfortunately the Perth Mint was not able to all each of the 15,000 coins that were struck, and it's thought that only 2,000 coins were actually sold

Quite a low figure compared to the mintages of other 2ozt privies in this series.

This coin remains housed in the original presentation case, and is accompanied by its serial-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
