First issued by The Perth Mint in 1990, the Australian Kookaburra portrays a new impression of the famous bush bird each year. With its unmistakable laughing call, the kookaburra is synonymous with Australia – from the outback to the back yard.
30th Anniversary Design
This coin’s reverse depicts a kookaburra perched on a corrugated iron rooftop with stylised rays of the rising sun in the background. The noticeably raised motifs appear on a highly-polished concave surface. As well as the bird, the coin rim and its serrated edge are decorated in 24-carat gold – making this spectacular release a first-of-a-kind for The Perth Mint. The coin’s reverse also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA 30TH ANNIVERSARY, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight and purity.
The coin has a special obverse featuring a representation of Stuart Devlin’s design for the original 1990 issue. His much-loved artistry, which portrays a kookaburra sitting on a tree branch amid gum leaves, appears below a miniature version of Jody Clark’s effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Included on the obverse are the year-dates 1990 and 2020, and the coin’s monetary denomination.
Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with a special 30th anniversary illustrated shipper, the coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin has been struck with an extra-deep blank to showcase its superbly detailed design in high relief.
