And I though Emus were distant cousins of Turkeys.

This silver coin is nice. Emu somehow reminds me of ostrich. Because there is a story of it being chased by an enemy along a beach, so it put it's head in the sand. Thinking if it can't see the enemy, therefore the enemy can't see the ostrich. Or was it an emu. It's a folklore story so may be fictional !

Well, the emu does look kind of like a chicken but with a longer neck. That was my view also before I heard people mention what the name was.
