Another treasure from my collection today, this time a silver Australian kookaburra coin minted in 2015.

This baby comes in a nifty little box. Let's open it!

It comes with a certificate as well, with all the basic information you need to know. Feel free to zoom and read it from the photo directly, I am too lazy to type it:

On the back side a common sighting, our beloved old hag from England:

A question..

While reading the manual I saw it is approved as a legal tenderr in Australia.

Does that mean it can be used to pay for items.

I really don't get how precious metals work?

Do you know where I can gave am easy to understand read about them

Yep, it's technically just like any other $1 coin that can be used at the shops.

However, this one is made of silver and the metal value alone is obviously worth more than the IOU to the government for $1 so you really don't want to spend it.

But you can!

I've got these sorts of coins in my change before where little Johnny has obviously raided Dad's coin collection for change before spending it on lollies.

Can you just picture the look on the guy's face when he realises it got spent haha.
