Story

World's happiest animal

A quokka is a small type of wallaby found mainly in the south west region of Western Australia, particularly Rottnest Island, an idyllic location 18 kilometres off the Perth coast. Thanks to its cute, smiley appearance, the quokka is known as the ‘world’s happiest animal’. Willing to interact with human beings, it has become a hugely popular subject for ‘selfies’ among thousands of annual visitors to the holiday hotspot.

Coloured design

The coin portrays a quokka in colour on a beach with a lighthouse in the background. Standing on its hind legs, the herbivorous marsupial is eating its preferred diet of leaves. Included on the reverse is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
