Enchanting Quokka Imagery
Obverse: The obverse is graced with a portrait Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in a right facing pose, with the famed Royal Diamond Diadem resting upon her head. The image is encircled by a wide border containing the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA” “1OZ 9999 AG,” “2022” and “1 DOLLAR.” This interpretation of the longest reigning monarch in British history was created by award-winning British sculptor Jody Clark in 2015.
Reverse: A wilderness scene appears on the reverse, depicting a pair of quokkas near a pond, surrounded by clusters of blooming Rottnest Island daisies. One of the creatures is enjoying a drink, while the other faces forward with its signature smile on its face. The inscription “QUOKKA,” arcs above the adorable wildlife image, with the Perth Mint mark “P” located on the left.
