The coin’s artwork provides viewers with an intimate look at the life of the koala in its native eucalyptus tree home. Depicted on the reverse of the coin is a close up of the mischievous marsupial, as it peers out from behind a eucalyptus branch. Wildlife enthusiasts are certain to admire the accuracy of the koala’s features from the distinct shape of its nose to its tufts of fur. Such realistic details are enough to make the viewer feel as though they were sitting in a tree branch right next to it. Framing the koala’s face is a ring of text bearing its name, “Australian Koala” as well as the coin’s mintage year, weight and purity.
The obverse provides us with a close up of another beloved Australian icon, Elizabeth II. This effigy of the crowned monarch pays tribute to Australia’s status as a British Common Wealth and consequently, their continued loyalty to HRM. Encircling the queen’s portrait is her title accompanied by the country’s name and the coin’s denomination.
