An attractive little coin with a tiny mintage, from the European Union privy series.

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 overlay that was issued as part of the hugely popular European Union privy series. It features the famous French landmark, the Eiffel Tower.

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