There are many beautiful national parks and botanical gardens in Australia full of incredible native flora and fauna including the kookaburra, the largest of the kingfisher species.
These birds mate for life and occupy the same territories year round, taking up residence in woodlands, open forests and even suburban areas of some Australian capital cities.
This stunning antiqued coin design features a kookaburra flying in Perth’s Kings Park with the city skyline in the background. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The obverse of the coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2018 year-date.
To capture the depth and detail of the design, the coin is struck in high relief to a rimless format, and has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and limited to only 2,000 coins worldwide!
Each coin is presented in a classic grey display case, within a stylised shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
