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 design depicts a representation of a kookaburra perched on an ornamental bird bath among Agapanthus, flowering plants regularly seen in Australian gardens. The bird and outer ring of the coin are gilded in 24-carat gold. The reverse also includes the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the coin’s weight, purity and 2022 year-date.
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.
