    G'day Folks,

    On offer this time round some assorted sets of Perth Mint Kookaburras ;) some 1990s, 2007s, 2010s, 2012s and a mixed Set :) Just as a reference, 2018 Perth Mint Kookaburras are available for $31 here :p

    *Interesting to note that, while looking for the latest prices, I found despite a Maximum Mintage of 500,000 for the 2017 Kookaburras (of which only 186,184 are declared "Sales to Date"), Perth Mint managed to squeeze out an additional 58,000 of these by releasing a
    Panda Privy (8,000) and a Shark Privy (50,000) o_O

    Auction finish starting at 18:00 WST (20:00 QLD / 20:30 SA / 21:00 EDST) - Friday 1st December... TONIGHT!!!

    ALL Lots finishing at the same time!! *With the usual "5 minutes after Final bid" actual finish for each particular Lot (Forum Timestamp used) *

    Any valid bid for a particular Lot extends the Finish for ALL Lots!!
    ie. The Auction will be Officially over once ALL bids have finished!!


    **Note** As a further "clarification", highlighted from previous Auctions, any bids not deemed "valid" (ie. raising a bid on a Lot your bid is already currently leading or a bid at less than / same price as the current leading bid for a particular Lot) will NOT extend the Finish time of the Auction... (Hoping this adds clarity :rolleyes:...)

    *No edited Bids, please :) the Forum does indicate "edited" when posts are edited (look above the "Quote Reply" right hand side) so if you make a bid and it turns out the same or lower than a previous bid please place a new post for the bid to make it higher rather than "edit" the post with the unsuccessful bid - although editing to clarify a Lot # is fine :oops: *


    Due to no "seconds" showing on Forum timeclock any duplicate bids with the same timestamp will be "first in line" gets the spot ;)

    ~SPOT RESERVEs - Highest bid over Reserve price will be the winner on ALL Lots

    Postage at Winner's Choice/Cost/Risk (at this stage...)

    BONUSFREE Pre-'46 Florin(s) for winners of Multiple Lots :cool:

    And without further ado, on to the Auction...

    Lot 1 - 3 * 1oz Silver Perth Mint 1990 $5 Kookaburras (Square Capsule) - Reserve $66
    Mintage - 300,000 (SOLD OUT) First year of issue!!
    * Note - 2 of the coins show some fantastic toning, 1 has some minor cracks in the capsule.
