Although emus are not graced with the power of flight, these unique birds from the Australian continent should not be looked upon with pity. Just like the ostrich, a distant cousin, the emu is a large bird, with the average member of the species standing around 6 feet tall. In addition to this height, the emu has powerful legs.
While the emu might not be able to fly away from its predators, it does have the ability to outrun a number of them. The large, powerful legs of the emu enable it to reach sprinting speeds of 30 MPH in the open Outback. Additionally, emus are incredibly adaptable and capable of surviving the harsh landscape of the Outback.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of 2022 Australian Silver Emu Coins. This portrait of the Queen was designed in 2015 by Jody Clark and is the sixth-generation effigy to feature on Australian coins. In this design, the Queen is set in right-profile relief at the age of 89. She wears upon her head the George IV State Diadem Crown.
Two emu depictions grace the reverse field of the 2022 1 oz Silver Emu Coin. In this year’s design, there are two images of the emu from different perspectives. In the foreground, you will find the right-profile image of the elegant neck and small head of the emu. In the background, the full-length image of the emu is featured in left-profile relief. This side of the coin features a micro-laser engraved letter visible only under magnification. This serves as a security element for the coin.
These 2022 1 oz Australian Silver Emu Coins are available to you for purchase with individual capsules. Multiples of the coins remain housed in capsules and are sealed in plastic rolls of 20 or packaged in boxes of 100. The box holds five sealed rolls of 20 coins each.
