Australia’s most recognisable bird

Now in its fourth decade and as popular as ever, the Australian Kookaburra is an iconic coin series featuring annual designs of one of Australia’s most recognisable birds. Famed for its raucous laughing call, the kookaburra is heard across Australia – from the outback to the back yard.

First incused kookaburra

Traditionally motifs on a coin have raised relief. However, where the design is described as incused, it is pressed into the surface of the blank. 

Presentation packaging

Housed in a classic display case featuring a clear lid and packaged in an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
