The emu is the largest native bird in Australia and lives on the mainland. Emus are flightless, feathered birds with long legs and necks. They can reach a speed of 60 km/hr and a height of up to 1.80 meters. The Emu is a national symbol of Australia and appears on the coat of arms next to the kangaroo holding the shield. Both animals can not move backwards and are thus intended to represent the progress and the forwardness of Australia.
The Perth Mint is one of the most famous mints in the world and is known for using the unique natural landscapes of Australia in its coin designs, which are presented in a realistic and detailed manner. It uses motifs that are displayed in their natural environment and native to Australia. Many coins produced by the Perth Mint are categorized as semi numismatics, due to the extraordinary designs and limited mintage numbers. The emu is the latest wildlife motif and joins the kookaburra, koala, kangaroo, bird of paradise and swan that have been featured on Perth Mint coins.
