Struck from 99.9% pure silver in specimen quality, each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 This dazzling duo showcases two of Australias most recognisable icons the koala and the kookaburra. The koala is an internationally recognised symbol of Australia. An arboreal marsupial, it spends most of its time in trees. Inactive during the day, it feeds on the foliage of the eucalypt at night. The kookaburra is the worlds largest kingfisher native to Australia and is renowned for its distinctive raucous laugh. The reverse koala design depicts a charming image of an adult koala and juvenile resting in the fork of a eucalyptus tree. The reverse kookaburra design depicts a magnificent image of this wonderful bird with outstretched wings resting on a bush timber perch. Both designs incorporate The Perth Mints P mintmark. Both coins, which are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 , depict the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
