The Kookaburra is one of Australia’s most recognisable birds found throughout mainland Australia. The bird’s white coloured plumage and brown facial stripe is distinctive, as is its loud laughing call. A territorial tree-dwelling kingfisher, the Kookaburra is believed to mate for life. Both the male and female partner share the incubation duties of their unhatched eggs, while other members in the family group later assist with the parenting responsibilities.

The coin’s reverse depicts a Kookaburra perched on a tree branch partially submerged in a river, and the inscriptions DISCOVER AUSTRALIA and KOOKABURRA. The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the 2012 year-date are also included in the design.
