Details

After the success of the first Australian Bush Babies series, The Perth Mint has released the Australian Bush Babies II series. Portraying more beloved Aussie animals, this series is sure to melt your heart.

The first release in this cute series depicts a baby kookaburra. The kookaburra is a kingfisher native to Australia and best known for its unmistakable call, which sounds uncannily like human laughter.

This beautiful bird is believed to mate for life, and when coupled, both male and female of the species share the incubation duties of their unhatched eggs. Territorial, but with a distinct social order, kookaburras in the same family group share the parenting duties.<p>

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, with a large 36mm diameter, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. The Perth Mint will release no more than 10,000 of these coins.
