Known as the ‘king of the bush’, the kookaburra has been featured on Perth Mint coins for over 30 years, delighting collectors with much-loved artistic representations of the iconic bird.

The coin’s design depicts a representation of two kookaburras perched on the branches of a shrub displaying the flowers of the Australian native waratah. The reverse also includes the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the coin’s weight, purity and 2023 year-date.

The reverse design elements typically pressed in raised high relief have been recessed below the coin’s surface in an impressively detailed incused strike. The coin's obverse has been struck in The Perth Mint’s traditional high relief finish.

The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
