When measured by its height, the emu is the second-largest living bird today behind only the ostrich, a species that is considered a ratite relative of the emu. The term “ratite” refers to the larger family of large, long-legged, flightless birds. Emus can stand as tall as 6.2 feet in height and run as fast as 31 MPH when necessary. The birds were once found on mainland Australia, Tasmania, Kangaroo Island, and King Island, but is now only found on the mainland.

On the reverse of 2019 Silver Australian Emu Coins is the new image for the 2019 release date. This design captures two emus standing together near a dry creek bed with rocks and grass scattered across the ground near a small tree. Emus were once most common along the east coast of Australia, but are now found throughout the inland, arid regions as well due to the provision of water for stock in those areas for agricultural purposes. Generally speaking, emus are most common in savannah woodland and forested areas.
The obverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Emu Coins features the latest effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Created by Jody Clark and based on his fifth-generation portrait of Her Majesty for the Royal Mint of England, this right-profile bust of the Queen is the sixth to feature on Australian coins during her reign and the first since 1966 to include her neckline and shoulders.
