Emu palladium coin, minted in 1998 by the Perth Mint, Australia's mint.
The Perth Mint's catalogue of products has an important presence of the country's fauna and flora, and considering its importance, the Emu was not going to be less. The bird, the second largest after the ostrich, cannot fly. This coin also serves as a warning of the danger of its extinction, as the species was decimated last century and is now very well cared for.
The design of the animal can be found on the cross: the arrangement is very peculiar: the centre has a lighter coloured background than the external face of the coin, where the specifications are found with a series of regularly arranged bas-relief points that border the coin.
The design features two emus, which appear to be in front of a small pond feeding on the plants found in the area. They have a magnificent design, in which their fur, the crest of their head and the small legs stand out
The edge of the coin is single-striped: it consists of very small rectangular lines in bas-relief.
On the face, the very young face of Queen Elizabeth II, executed in great detail, especially by the contrast of the wavy lines of her hair and the straight lines of her crown, as well as her pearl pendant and her teardrop earring. Around her, her name, the name of the country where the coin is minted and the face value of the coin ($40).
The Emu coin is made of 999.5-purity palladium, measures 36.1 millimetres and weighs 31.1035 grams.
