Unique Kookaburra design by Neil Hollis
The obverse bears the famous Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that has long appeared on Australian coins, as well as coins from other countries and territories. The longest serving monarch in British history is shown wearing a tiara. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed along the rim, along with the name of the issuing country, "AUSTRALIA" and the face value, "1 DOLLAR."
The reverse image was created by Neil Hollis. Unlike nearly all other coins in this series, it shows the stunning kookaburra in flight. Hollis shows the bird with its wings spread widely, revealing details of the bird that are seldom incorporated into issues in this remarkable series. What makes this image truly remarkable, though, is the detailed moon, which looms large in the background. "AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA" arches over the image along the rim, while the date, weight and face value are inscribed below.
