Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of the 2008 Australian Kookaburra Silver Coin. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This depiction was created in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England by Ian Rank-Broadley. The inscriptions on this side read ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 2 DOLLARS.


A kookaburra is featured in the reverse design of 2008 Kookaburra 2 oz Silver Coins. This design is exclusive to the 2008 date mark in this series and shows a small kookaburra on the branch of a tree as it looks down at a spiders web. The inscriptions on this face of the coin include THE AUSTRALIAN KOOKABURRA, 2 OZ 999 SILVER, and 2008.


The kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species. The call of the kookaburra is said to mimic the laughter of humans and is commonly used in audio tracks representing the Australian Outback.
