The Australian Silver Koala coin was introduced in 2007 and has since been in continuous production. The Australian Perth Mint is responsible for the production of the coins.
The obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Australia’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Australia has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Above the Queen’s effigy is the text “ELIZABETH II” and “AUSTRALIA”. Inscribed below the effigy is the nominal face value of 30 dollars and the designer’s initials “IRB” – Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse displays one of Australia’s most famous marsupials, the koala bear, and above it is inscribed “AUSTRALIA KOALA”. Below the koala is the year of mintage, weight and purity. To the right of the koala is the letter “P” which stands for Perth Mint.
