2023 ANDA Kookaburra Coin Design

The coin portrays an image of two kookaburras perched on the branches of a shrub displaying the flowers of Australian native waratah (Telopea). The design includes a colored privy mark representation of a helmeted honeyeater (Lichenostomus melanops cassidix), a rare yellow, black, and olive feathered bird with golden tufts on either side of its head that became Victoria’s bird emblem in 1971. The reverse also incorporates the inscription KOOKABURRA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the coin’s weight, purity, and 2023 year-date.

The obverse of each coin bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, supplemented with the dates of her reign, and the monetary denomination.


The coin is presented in a colored presentation card that incorporates a fold-out stand for upright display.


Designer and engraver Jody Clark joined the Royal Mint UK in 2012. His portrait of Queen Elizabeth II became the fifth official portrait in 2015 (View Designer’s Profile).

Wade Robinson is a senior designer at the Perth Mint, having worked there since 2003.
