Australian Kookaburra coins are the ones that started a trend at the Perth Mint. First issued in 1990, the Australian Kookaburra set the course for Australian coins using fresh designs of native fauna on the reverse each year. It was such a popular concept, the Gold Australian Nugget was renamed the same year as the Gold Australian Kangaroo and used the same approach. 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of this impressive series.

The 2020 Gold Australian Kookaburras feature a dual date mark to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the coins. All of the issues in the series have “1990” and “2020” marked on the reverse. Larger weights in the series also have two images of the kookaburra. The reverse of those larger coins includes the new 2020 kookaburra design, while also featuring the 1990 design from Stuart Devlin on the obverse along with the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
On the reverse of these 2020 1/10 oz Gold Australian Kookaburras is the 1990 design from Stuart Devlin. This is the only image of the kookaburra on these coins because of the smaller design field available. The original design in the series depicts a single kookaburra sitting on the trunk of a chopped-down tree as foliage frames its figure.
The obverse side of 2020 Gold Australian Kookaburras comes with the sixth-generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on Australian coins. The first since 1966 to include the Queen’s neckline and shoulders in the design, this right-profile portrait features the Queen wearing the George IV State Diadem crown. Worn only during the State Opening of Parliament, this crown has an astonishing 1,333 diamonds within its design.
