The Next Generation Series from the Perth Mint launched in 2018 with two common factors for each coin in the collection. First, the design on the reverse always focuses on a mother and its baby. This started in 2018 with the Koala mother and her young baby, and continued in 2019 with the Crocodile mother and baby. Now, the series moves on to a third design with one of the continents most famous residents.

The term piedfort comes from the Middle Ages and refers to the coinage of the era that was often known as a heavy-foot style. These coins were thicker specimens with greater weight in a smaller diameter. Modern coins of this type represent that same reality with a 2 oz weight on a 1 oz coin diameter.

On the obverse face of 2020 2 oz Australian Mother and Baby Kookaburra Silver Coins, you will find the latest effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The sixth-generation portrait of the Queen, this design was created by Jody Clark and is unique to Australian coins in its inclusion of the Queens shoulders in the design. This is the first time her complete neckline and shoulders have featured on an Australian denomination since 1966.

The reverse side of the 2020 Australian Mother and Baby Kookaburra Silver Coins features a depiction of a small baby kookaburra nestled up close to its mother. You can tell the little baby bird is hungry and the mother is no doubt ready to lend a hand.
