Perth Mint Silver Koala Coin Design

The coin’s reverse portrays a koala asleep on the bough of a tree amid clusters of aromatic eucalyptus leaves. Both coin designs incorporate the inscription ‘KOALA’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2022 year-date, and the weight and purity.

The obverse of each silver koala bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the coin’s design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.


Designer and engraver Jody Clark joined the Royal Mint UK in 2012. His portrait of Queen Elizabeth II became the fifth official portrait in 2015 (View Designer’s Profile).

Ing Ing Jong is a coin designer at the Perth Mint. Her work can be seen on many of the Lunar Series coins.
