Celebrating a landmark achievement, the 2020 Australian Kookaburra Coin Series features a special 30th anniversary coin design affectionately dubbed the ‘double kook’.

The reverse image portrays original artistry of the kingfisher in a pose familiar to many Australians. 

Perched on a corrugated rooftop at dawn, the kookaburra is depicted in the midst of its morning chorus as it greets the day with its infamous cackling laugh. Also included is the inscription is ‘AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA 30TH ANNIVERSARY’.

The obverse features a representation of Stuart Devlin’s depiction of a kookaburra on a tree stump surrounded by native foliage, as it appeared on the 1990 Australian Kookaburra Silver Bullion Coin. The anniversary dates ‘1990-2020’ are also included together with a miniature representation of Jody Clark’s effigy of the Queen. 

A long-standing favourite among silver coin investors worldwide, the Australian Kookaburra’s enduring popularity has seen it sell close to 9 million coins across its 30-year life. 

The graphic below celebrates 30 years of the Australian Kookaburra with a look back at all the memorable designs to have graced this iconic series.
