Comments

Issued by the RAM in a tall Coincard in 2011 is this NCLT Pad Printed/Colourised Reverse Frosted $1 Aluminium-bronze coin. It is part of the six coin Air Series of coins issued in individual Coincards in 2011.


The Kookaburra's name comes from an old aboriginal language known as Wiradjuri. The word "guuguubarra" was used to describe it's raucus laughter at dawn and dusk, which it uses as a greeting to other birds.
