This impressive silver proof high relief coin features the 2019 Australian kookaburra design, showcasing one of Australia’s most distinct and unique species.
The coin’s reverse depicts a kookaburra perched on a branch during sunset. The branch is submerged in a river, which is lined with wetland grasses and a gumtree. The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, the 2019 year-date, the coin’s weight and fineness and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin’s obverse depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
