Second Coin in the New "Birds of Australia" Series
This brand new coin program is inspired by the birds that inhabit the continent of Australia. Because of the nation’s island status, many of these species are unique and breathtakingly beautiful.
A beautiful, small green and yellow parrot, the Budgerigar lives wild in the wide open spaces of inland Australia. A nomadic bird, it flies in groups in search of water and the seeds of native herbs and grasses. Budgerigars are inclined to breed in years of abundant rainfall. Born naked and helpless, young Budgerigars typically fledge after about five weeks. In good years, huge flocks of birds can be seen twisting and turning in unison in the sky.
