The kookaburra coin’s reverse portrays a colored image of a kookaburra perched on a tree branch with gum leaves. The design includes the inscription "AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA", designed by Darryl Bellotti. The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of all three coins.
Like the kangaroo, the koala symbolizes all things Australian. Often thought to be a member of the bear family, the koala is really a marsupial, with a pouch for its young. In the outback, this wonderful creature has adapted to the country’s extreme conditions by spending its life in trees and feeding on eucalyptus leaves. It’s a little known fact that the koala’s fingerprints are remarkably similar to those of human beings.
The Australian kookaburra is world-renowned for its laughing call, which can be heard usually at sunrise and sunset. The eerie laughing has found its way into popular culture, which makes this bird even more unique. Related to the kingfisher family, the extraordinary kookaburra is actually a carnivore and extremely territorial. The sound of kookaburras singing in a dawn chorus, in the Australian outback, is a truly incredible experience.
