This 2014 Silver Australian Kookaburra Coin is the 24th installment in a collection of 10 oz. silver coins commemorating the native Australian bird.

Depicted on the reverse of the coin is the eponymous kookaburra in its native gum tree home. It sits carefully perched on a tree limb against a backdrop of gum tree leaves. Viewers are certain to be impressed by the realistic details of both the kookaburra and its natural habitat. From the texture of its feathers to the distinctive foliage of its native tree home, such accurate renditions are enough to make the viewer feel as though they were actually peering through the branches for an up close look. Serving as a border to this stunning image is an inscription which includes the kookaburra’s name along with the coin’s mintage year, weight and purity.
Proudly displayed on the reverse side of the coin is an effigy of Elizabeth II in all her regal glory. Her portrait symbolizes Australia’s pride in their status as a British Common wealth as well as their allegiance to the gracious monarch. Inscribed near the edge of the coin is her title followed by the country’s name and the coin’s denomination.
