The Bird of Paradise, better known in Australia as Victoria’s riflebird, is one of a species of birds native originally to New Guinea. In the case of Victoria’s riflebird, the creatures are endemic to the Atherton Tableland in the Australian state of Queensland where the creatures live in the rainforests year round.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Australian Silver Bird of Paradise Coin is the image of Victoria’s riflebird as it spreads its beautiful wings wide from its perch on a branch. The species is named after the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom when it was discovered by a Scottish naturalist in 1848: Queen Victoria I.
The obverse of the Australian Silver Bird of Paradise Coin includes the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The great-great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria I, Elizabeth II has been on the throne of England since 1952 and is now the longest-reigning monarch in British history.
