    Hi guys, some of you may be aware of the Perth's new release of the 10 oz, 2020 Kookaburra and Baby series.
    The 10 oz, 2020 coin has limited mintage of only 2,500.

    It's been difficult to get Perth Mint 10 oz silver bars so an alternative might be a 10 oz coin and with a limited mintage of only 2,500 coins.............................for your consideration.

    The difference in price isn't that great:
    2020 Australian Kookaburra Mother & Baby 10oz Silver Bullion Piedfort Coin = $274AUD
    Perth Mint 10oz Silver Bar = $260.50AUD

    The bar is 99.9 purity
    The coin is 99.99 purity and comes in presented in a protective acrylic capsule.

    At the moment, Perth have a restriction of only 5 x 10 oz coins per person.

    The 2 oz are a Bargain,,if you can get them. Priced at a touch over $54.65 if you grab 10
    Currently out of stock but more will be listed,only a matter of keeping an eye on their website

    I don't want 10 of the 2oz so I'll just have to see if I can pick one up down the track as I do like the design unless I can pick up a 10oz

    The guy that's out the back making them,yells out to the girls out the front "stick another 10 on the website,i have just finished them"
    They will keep coming back until the Sold Out sign goes up (not the out of stock sign)
    Ridiculous mintage of only 2500 on the 10oz

    It's probably one of the lowest 10 oz coins they have made and that's a worldwide mintage I believe. Priced roughly the same as a 10 ounce generic bar, if you can find one at $275. No brainer in my opinion,i would take the kook any day. The 2 oz is only $57 posted in lots of 10

    The frosted silver really highlights the obverse; Perth did a great job on these coins and there's no milk spots. :D

    When I see those rays I think of a Cornflakes packet. Same with the standard 2020 1 oz kook.
