The quokka is a small marsupial species that lives in a limited range in the southwestern reaches of the state of Western Australia. Roughly the size of a domesticated cat, the quokka has become a star in the digital age as tourists visiting the area have found out firsthand how friendly the quokka is. Tourists have taken to social media to share snaps of themselves with the quokka.
Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse of 2020 1 oz Australian Quokka Silver Coins. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in the sixth-generation design for Australian coins. This image was originally created in 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England.
In the reverse design of the 2021 Australian Quokka Silver Coin is a depiction of the friendly, lovable marsupial. The quokka is most closely related to the wallaby and the kangaroo, and like other marsupials, it is predominantly a nocturnal animal. On this side of the coin, the Perth Mint has included a security feature in the form of a microscopic letter within the design. It is only visible with magnification.
The Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint in Australia. Opened in 1899, it was intended to serve as the third branch of the Royal Mint in Australia alongside the Sydney Mint and the Melbourne Mint. Today, it is the only one of the three still operating and is the only mint other than the Royal Australian Mint that strikes Australian coins.
