Kakadu National Park

Friday 1 September 2023


Some of Australia’s World-Heritage wonders are officially etched in time, featuring on a brand new coin to celebrate Australia’s natural and built heritage.

Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa and Kakadu National Parks are proud to be included on the freshly frosted $5 coin, which was designed by Royal Australian Mint coin designer Tony Dean.

Both parks are UNESCO World-Heritage listed for their natural and cultural values, and it’s great to see these parks will continue to be recognised. 

The coin features all 20 of Australia’s world heritage locations and highlights the diversity of Australia’s internationally significant heritage. This amazing coin will encourage awareness of our unique biodiversity, deep Indigenous connections with Country and extraordinary cultural places which is ultimately priceless.

Other famous sites featured on the coin include the Great Barrier Reef, the Sydney Opera House, Macquarie Island, Ningaloo Coast and K’gari (Fraser Island).
