Kookaburras are the largest birds in the kingfisher family standing anywhere from 11 to 17 inches in length. They inhabit areas with running water and tall trees in Australia and New Guinea. Their diet consists of mice, snakes, small reptiles, fish, and even other smaller birds. Kookaburras have a very distinct call, which oftentimes sounds like a loud, echoing human laugh.
An effigy by Ian Rank-Broadley of Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse. Her Majesty’s name, “AUSTRALIA,” and the coin’s year of release and denomination are also inscribed. On Sept. 9, 2015, Queen Elizabeth II surpassed Queen Victoria, her great-great grandmother, as the longest reigning British Monarch.
