Minted cassowaries

Looking for the perfect gift for cassowary lovers? Then you’ll be delighted to know the cassowary is one of the latest additions to Australia’s coinage!

The Perth Mint has produced a beautiful set of 2011 Celebrate Australia $1 coins that portray scenes from World Heritage Areas across Australia.

The Wet Tropics coin features the Southern Cassowary with a backdrop of a waterfall and native Burrawang Palms.

Coins can be purchased in commemorative presentation folders from Australia Post offices for $14.95. We look forward to seeing the range of Dollarius casuarius johnsonii expand across the country!
