Story

Sociable and smiley

Quokkas are wallaby-like marsupials found mainly in the south west region of Western Australia, particularly Rottnest Island, an idyllic location 18 kilometres off the coast near Perth. About the same size of domestic cats, furry quokkas are extremely sociable animals blessed with a cute, smiley and highly photogenic appearance.

Quokkas at a waterhole

The coin portrays two quokkas at a waterhole with nearby Rottnest Island daisies. The design includes the inscription ‘QUOKKA’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse with the coin’s weight and fineness, monetary denomination and 2022 year-date.

Authentication feature

The coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.

Presentation and mintage

Presented in a protective acrylic capsule, the Quokka 2022 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is subject to a limited mintage of just 30,000.
