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 1 dollar 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.

The Silver Koala coin depicts Australia’s famous marsupial  

The koala is a marsupial native to the eastern and southern parts of Australia. Although not in any way related to bears, the word bear is added to their name as they have a distinct look of a small teddy bear. The name “koala” derives from an indigenous Australian language which means “animal that does not drink”. In fact, koalas will rarely drink water as they receive most of their needed water from their main source of food: eucalyptus leaves. They grow to be between 60 and 90 cm high and are characterised by their black short nose and large fluffy ears. What is fascinating about the koala is its ability to base its diet on leaves from the eucalyptus tree which in general are highly toxic to most mammals and contain low levels of beneficial nutrients. To cope with this peculiar low energy diet, the koala will limit its energy use by sleeping between 17-20 hours per day.
