Outback speedster

Found only in Australia, the emu is the world’s second largest bird. With wings that are too small for it to fly, the six-foot creature is equipped with long and powerful legs, enabling it to sprint at speeds of nearly 50km per hour across the outback plains.

Protective asset

The coin portrays an emu keeping a watchful presence over her young offspring. The birds’ protective plumage, essential for their ability to survive extreme changes of temperature in the outback, is represented in extraordinary detail.

Also included in the design is the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN EMU’, The Perth Mint ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, purity and year-date.

Authentication feature

For additional peace of mind, the coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.


Presented in a protective acrylic capsule, the Australian Emu 2022 1oz Gold Bullion Coin is subject to a maximum mintage of 5,000.
