Item: i84712 Authentic Coin of. Queen: 6 February 1952present Kokkaburra Series 1989 Proof Silver 10 Dollars 33 mm (20.00 grams) 0.925 Silver 0.5948 oz. ASW Reference: KM# 133 ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 1989 RDM, Queen Elizabeth II facing right. TEN DOLLARS HH, Two Kookaburras on a tree branch. Kookaburras are terrestrial tree kingfishers of the genus Dacelo native to Australia and New Guinea, which grow to between 28 and 42 centimetres (11 and 17 inches) in length and weigh around 300 grams 10.
The name is a loanword from Wiradjuri guuguubarra , onomatopoeic of its call. The loud distinctive call of the laughing kookaburra is widely used as a stock sound effect in situations that involve an Australian bush setting or tropical jungle, especially in older movies. They are found in habitats ranging from humid forest to arid savanna, as well as in suburban areas with tall trees or near running water. Even though they belong to the larger group known as "kingfishers", kookaburras are not closely associated with water.
