In Australia, the 12 Days of Christmas carol is a little different than ours. It starts off with On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me, a kookaburra in a gum tree. Appropriately, Australia has issued a limited quantity of 1 oz. pure silver Kookaburra coins that carry a full color privy mark of Santa Claus. Only 50,000 of these Brilliant Uncirculated Silver Dollars have been produced by the Perth Mint, whose silver dollars have featured Kookaburra birds since 1992. Each silver dollar comes in a clear protective capsule that is held by Santa Claus. It can serve as a Christmas tree decoration or a greeting card (there is room on the back for a personal message). The Santa Claus decoration also comes with an acrylic stand so it can be displayed on a shelf or table.
