Design of the Silver Australian Kookaburra - In keeping with design rotations for its other bullion coins, the reverse designs change annually, always featuring a kookaburra, an Australian native bird. The 2009 1-kg Silver Kookaburra - as with all sizes - features a new version of a kookaburra along with the date of issue, size, and fineness. As with Australia's other bullion coins, the design on the obverse (heads side) features a profile view of Queen Elizabeth II, as designed by Ian Rank Broadley. She is encircled by her name, the name of the country, and the denomination.
