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.
Gilded Reverse Highlights
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.
Classic Display Case
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.
