First issued in 1990, the Australian Kookaburra is a trusted silver bullion coin series featuring imagery of the iconic bird that draws its name from the Wiradjuri word ‘gugubarra’. First Nations people, who have lived here for tens of thousands of years, tell numerous stories about the kookaburra, and it has subsequently been idolised in contemporary Australian arts and literature.
