    Hi stackers,
    Perth Mint finally delivered my 2 ounce kookaburra; I just wanted to share with you some pictures of this amazing coin which will be a highlight of my collection.

    I am guessing the coin looks better in real life than in photos?

    Prices are getting crazy, FOMO kicked in and I grabbed one from overseas.

    Whilst it looks really nice, I couldn’t justify grabbing one myself. I’m too spooked about getting the premiums back when it’s time to resell. Would be a great piece for a collector type stacker, but that’s not me personally. Fingers crossed it holds its premium for any members who buy it!

    I ended up paying $320 inc shipping but since placing my order they have increased the price even more. Though its a huge premium I thought thats the best deal I will get new from a shop.

    Well done. I had the opportunity but mistakenly thought this one would fizzle out like the last series of gilded kooks. There was a solid gold 2oz kook at Downies the other day but now seems to have disappeared.

    edit: mintage=125

    This is the reason I bought it.
    I feel that the premium above spot will fall after the FOMO dies off, I just wanted one because it looked unusual to me. I can't see this one to leave my stack.

    I collected my 30th Anniversary 2oz gilded Kook coin the other day: it looks and feels great!
