The 2023 $1 Azure Kingfisher Silver Proof Coin, a numismatic masterpiece and an extraordinary Australian bird it celebrates! Notable for its vibrantly colourful design, low mintage and precious metal content. The reverse depicts an Azure Kingfisher in full flight with its catch in its beak.

Cloaked in stunning blue, violet and orange plumage, darting upon prey in a flash of colour from branches above the river or forest floor, the Azure Kingfisher is one of the smallest and most dazzling kingfishers in Australia! This diminutive species inhabits the vegetation beside waterways and other wetlands where it often perches on low, overhanging branches, searching for its prey - captured by plunging into the water. Anglers on lonely rivers are sometimes surprised to find an Azure Kingfisher perched quietly on their fishing rods instead of a branch.
