There are few birds in Australia as beloved as the Kookaburra. These winged creatures are part of the Kingfisher family and have four distinct species. One of the most popular of these species is known as the Laughing Kookaburra. It lives up to its name, making a distinct chortle at both dawn and dusk. This is its way of making its territory known to others. Today, 2022 2 oz Proof Silver Australian Kookaburra Coins are available to you online from Silver.com.

Along the border are the inscriptions Elizabeth II, Australia, 2 Dollars. This portrait was finished in 2015 and has been used on numerous coins within the Commonwealth nations.
A Kookaburra is featured on the reverse design of 2022 2 oz Australian Kookaburra Coins. This remarkably detailed image includes a gilded finish that helps to highlight the bird’s beauty. Other details include a birdbath on which the Kookaburra rests, and the Agapanthus plant common to gardens in Australia. An inscription reading Kookaburra is included on the reverse, as well as the coin’s hallmarks.
The Laughing Kookaburra is one of four species of this type of bird found in Australia. The other three are the Rufous-Bellied Kookaburra, the Spangled Kookaburra, and the Blue-Winged Kookaburra. There is another known as the Shovel-Billed Kookaburra, but it is a member of a separate genus. Kookaburras are the largest of the Kingfisher family despite the fact that they rarely eat fish and spend little time around the water. Instead, Kookaburras enjoy wooded areas, which makes them easy to find when visiting the park.
