Comments

First issued in 1990, the Australian Kookaburra is a much-loved annual coin series portraying our most famous bush bird. Marking its 30th anniversary, this year’s releases feature a special obverse featuring a representation of Stuart Devlin’s original Kookaburra design.

The coin’s reverse portrays an appealing image of a kookaburra on a corrugated iron rooftop in noticeably raised relief. For a beautifully enhanced appearance, the stylised rays of sunshine in the background are delicately gilded in pink gold. Also included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in presentation packaging comprising a classic display case with a clear lid and a special 30th anniversary shipper.
