Iconic animal

Standing up to 1.9 metres tall, the emu is Australia’s largest bird and the second biggest in the world. While it cannot fly, its powerful legs can propel it across the continent’s dry plains at speeds up to 50 kilometres an hour. Emus’ primitive feathers, which resemble coarse hair, help them survive the extreme changes in temperature that can be experienced in the Australian outback.

Emu design

The coin’s reverse depicts a pair of emus resting near a body of water in the Australian outback. Also included is the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN EMU’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the weight and fineness, and the 2020 year-date.
