Kookaburra Brandenburg Gate 1 oz coin, minted by the Royal Australian Mint in 2020.
All Australian mints have depicted the Kookaburra, one of the most characteristic animal species of the country's fauna, each in its own style. On this occasion, the Royal Australian Mint takes the bird to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, the site of the World's Fair Mint.
This is depicted on the cross, in which the animal is shown perched on a small branch with two leaves as it gazes lovingly at the historic monument. The background of the coin is flat, which allows us to focus our attention on the two figures depicted.
The level of detail of the bird is superb: all the feathers on its body can be seen, as well as the talons with which it perches on the tree branch.
On the face is the face of Queen Elizabeth II by the artist Jody Clark, which is highlighted by a crown with various decorative motifs that contrast with the wavy lines of her hair. The background is flat and around the Queen we find her name, the name of the country of issue and the year of issue.
The Kookaburra Brandenburg Gate is minted in 1 ounce of 99.999% pure silver, has a diameter of 40.00 millimetres and a thickness of 2.90 millimetres.
