Emus are native to the Australian continent, with subspecies that originally lived in Tasmania, Kangaroo Island, and King Island. However, following the arrival of European settlers in 1788, the subspecies located on the latter three islands went extinct. Today, the emus range consists of most of mainland Australia.

On the obverse side of 2021 Gold Australian Emus is a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in July 2015 by Jody Clark, this effigy is the sixth to appear on Australian coins during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. It is the first design since 1966 to include her neckline and shoulders in a coin portrait. Her Majesty is aged 89 in this portrait and wears the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head.
The reverse field of the 2021 1 oz Gold Emu comes with a depiction of two emus. Soft-feathered and flightless, the emu can reach heights over 6 feet tall. The design featured here shows a male emu near a small body of water with a young hatchling. After the female emu lays eggs, it is the male’s responsibility to incubate the egg and raise the young hatchling for the first several months.
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 as the third branch facility of the Royal Mint. Following the founding of the Royal Australian Mint, the Perth Mint was eventually transferred to the control of the state of Western Australia in 1970.
