The Perth Mint introduced the first design in the Next Generation Series in 2018. Each one of the designs represents the “next generation” theme with the depiction of a mother from a native animal species with its young. The series launched in 2018 with the lovable koala marsupial. The 2019 coin featured the saltwater crocodile common to Australia.
For the third release, another unique species endemic to Australia is featured with the kookaburra. Already featured in its own devoted series from the mint each year, this design is a perfect addition to the Next Generation Series.
The obverse side of 2020 10 oz Silver Australian Mother and Baby Kookaburra Coins includes a right-profile bust of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown at the age of 89 with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head wearing royal earrings and a necklace as well. This image is the sixth-generation bust of the Queen to feature on Australian coins and debuted in 2018 on select coins.
On the reverse face of 2020 Silver Australian Mother and Baby Kookaburra Coins is a depiction of a female kookaburra in the nest with a young hatchling. The hatchling’s mouth is open, no doubt indicating it is ready to be fed by its mother. This side of the coin has a visible “P” mintmark from the Perth Mint, as well as a microscopic “P” as a security feature that is only visible under magnification. Both sides of the coin have a radial sunburst background element.
These 2020 10 oz Silver Australian Mother and Baby Kookaburra ship to you inside of individual plastic capsules and are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Perth Mint.
