FIRST QUOKKA COIN FOR SILVER BULLION INVESTORS
The quokka is a Western Australian icon that is strongly associated with Rottnest Island near Perth. The idyllic holiday location is home to thousands of quokkas which, in the age of social media, have become the subjects of must-have ‘selfies’. Small, wallaby-like creatures that are not intimidated by humans, they have a cute and smiley appearance.
