Obverse: The obverse is adorned with an elegant right facing portrait Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The image is encircled by a border containing the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA,” “1/2 OZ 9999 AG,” “2023” and “50 CENTS.” Above the Queen, the memorial dates “1952-2022” appear in honor of her historic seventy year reign. This rendition of the late monarch was created by acclaimed British sculptor Jody Clark in 2015.
Reverse: Adorable newborns of Australia’s most recognizable native creatures, a kookaburra, a kangaroo and a koala, are depicted on the reverse, colorized with soft pastel hues. Eucalyptus leaves and spiky seed pods randomly float around the trio, while the celebratory message of “CONGRATULATIONS!” curves overhead. The composition also includes the Perth Mint’s traditional “P” Mint mark.
