2022 Australian Quokka 1oz Silver Bullion Coin, presented by The Perth Mint with a 30,000 mintage.

 

This one ounce silver bullion coin with a face value of $1 is the third bullion coin by the Perth Mint featuring the Quokka.

Quokkas are wallaby-like marsupials found mainly in the south west region of Western Australia, particularly Rottnest Island, an idyllic location 18 kilometres off the coast near Perth. About the same size of domestic cats, furry quokkas are extremely sociable animals blessed with a cute, smiley and highly photogenic appearance.

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown and the Victoria Coronation necklace worn for her Coronation. This is her effigy known as the “Fifth Portrait” worldwide and “Sixth Portrait” in Australia, in “uncouped” version – showing the Queen’s shoulders and not terminating at the neck as the normal version, On the left, in small letters on the Queen’s shoulder, the artist’s initials J.C (for Jody Clark), Running continuously around the rim is the monarch’s legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 1oz 9999 Ag 2022 1 DOLLAR, The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. “1 oz 9999 Ag” means “one ounce of 99.99% silver” – Ag is abbreviated from the Latin word for silver, Argentum.

The reverse design portrays two quokkas at a waterhole with nearby Rottnest Island daisies, In the ground below right, the designer’s initials SR (for Sean Rogers). On the left, the Perth Mint’s traditional P mint mark, Around above, the inscription QUOKKA.

Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, this coin portrays a quokka with it’s little Joey in the foreground, the herbivorous marsupial is surrounded by a flowery landscape. Included in the design is the inscription QUOKKA and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

No more than 30,000 will be released.
