Gorgeous Baby Kookaburra Design

In western folklore, parents have told their children for centuries that babies are delivered by a stork. As an Australian take on this legend, the coin’s reverse depicts a cute Australian kookaburra carrying a sleeping newborn baby in a swaddling cloth.  A representation of Australian foliage, the inscription CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BABY and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also incorporated into the design.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date, and the monetary denomination are shown on the coin’s obverse.


The coin is issued on a mint-to-order basis.

Illustrated Gift Card Packaging and Numbered Certificate

The coin is housed in an elaborate Australian themed gift card, with room to write the baby’s details, a family tree and a place to house a photograph.
