With an extremely limited issue of 1,000, the 2018 Australian High Relief Three-Coin Collection showcases three iconic Australian animals. The kookaburra, kangaroo and koala are internationally recognised symbols of Australia and extremely popular designs among collectors worldwide. These high relief releases represent the very best in minting excellence and are fitting tributes to the magnificent Australian animals they portray.
The Australian Kangaroo coin’s reverse depicts two kangaroos in a stylised rural landscape. The Australian Koala coin's reverse depicts a representation of the much-loved marsupial astride two branches in a flowering eucalyptus tree. The Australian Kookaburra coin’s reverse depicts a kookaburra in flight with the full moon in the background.
Extra thick blanks and deeply engraved dies are required to press each coin in this exceptional set. The specialised artisanship that goes into crafting these splendid coins gives each one an appreciably raised relief showcasing the design in spectacular style.
