The obverse of all Australian Silver Koala coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty always features on the obverse of Australian coinage and has since her ascension to the throne in 1952. This is the fourth-generation depiction of the Queen created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 Kilo Australian Silver Koala coin you’ll find the latest design of this beloved marsupial. The koala is often viewed as a lovable, cuddly animal due to its sloth-like nature and the fact that it sleeps for more than 18 hours a day. In reality, the koala has a sour temperament and will use the claws on its hands and feet to defend itself when threatened.
