This extraordinary 2oz silver proof high relief gilded coin showcases Australia’s largest kingfisher, the kookaburra.
An essential feature of the dawn chorus, kookaburras also make their cackling call at sunset when establishing territory among family groups. Elements of the high relief design have been gilded in 24-carat gold, superbly combining two celebrated minting techniques.
The coin’s reverse design portrays a kookaburra perched upon a eucalyptus tree branch. The bird and outer ring of the coin are gilded in 24-carat gold. Also included is the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, purity and 2021 year-date.
The coin has been struck with an extra-deep blank to showcase its superbly detailed design in high relief.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged within an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
