Kookaburras are part of the Kingfisher family and include four species in total. These birds are 15-17 inches long on average with impressive beaks extending up to 4 inches. They are native to Australia and New Guinea and unlike other Kingfishers, are not often found around the water. Instead, you can locate these birds in parks and neighborhoods, where they make their presence known with their highly distinctive laughing sounds. They make these noises around dusk and dawn, which has earned the Kookaburra the nickname of Bushman’s Clock.
The obverse of 2022 5 oz Silver Kookaburra Incused Coins depicts Jody Clark’s 2015 portrait of Queen Elizabeth. Her Majesty faces the right side and wears the George IV State Diadem, along with earrings and a necklace. This is only the 5th official portrait of Her Majesty used for coinage since her reign began in 1952.
On the reverse field of 2022 Silver Australian Kookaburra Incused Coins is a stunning Kookaburra design. The bird is shown in profile facing left perched atop a decorative birdbath. Lilies of the Valley flowers common to the Australian region are also included in the design. Inscriptions along the rim include Kookaburra, 2022 5 oz .9999 Silver.
All 2022 5 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra Incused Coins are delivered to you inside protective display boxes and include a numbered Certificate of Authenticity from the mint. Setting them apart from other Kookaburra coins is the fact that the design is an incuse strike. Unlike the three-dimensional effect of a high relief strike, these designs recede inward.
