The Australian kangaroo represents Australia throughout the world. This magnificent creature is designed to hop great distances, which is required for survival in the outback where water and vegetation can be scarce. The kangaroo also comes with a ready-made pouch so that it can carry and nurture its young while on the move.

Like the kangaroo, the koala is unique to Australia. Often thought to be a member of the bear family, the koala is really a marsupial. In the outback, this wonderful creature has adapted to the country’s extreme conditions by spending its life in trees and feeding on eucalypt leaves. It’s a little known fact that the koala’s fingerprints are remarkably similar to those of human beings.

The Australian kookaburra is world-renowned for its laughing call, which can be heard usually at sunrise and sunset. The eerie laughter has found its way into popular culture, which makes this bird even more unique. Related to the Kingfisher family, the extraordinary kookaburra is a carnivore and extremely territorial. The sound of kookaburras singing in a dawn chorus in the Australian outback is a truly incredible experience.

A limited offering by The Perth Mint no more than 5,000 of these 1/2oz three-coin sets will be released worldwide.

This three-coin set is presented in a prestigious display case with an illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
