Now 30 years old and as strong 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.
Kookaburra Reverse with Privy Mark
The coin’s reverse portrays a kookaburra on a corrugated roof top with stylised rays of sunlight in the background. Included in the design is a small privy mark depicting Pink Common Heath, a slender, upright shrub with tubular flowers that was chosen to represent the state of Victoria in 1958. As well as the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA 30TH ANNIVERSARY, the reverse bears the coin’s weight and purity and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin is housed in an illustrated card displaying the words MELBOURNE MONEY EXPO ANDA SPECIAL and the logo of the Australasian Numismatic Dealer’s Association.
