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.
The coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, The Perth Mint will release no more than 30,000.
The reverse portrays a quokka 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 in the design is the inscription QUOKKA and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The obverse depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as well as the monetary denomination and 2020 year-date.
This coin includes an authentication feature on the reverse 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.
The Quokka 2020 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is presented by The Perth Mint in an individual protective acrylic capsule. There are 20 coins to a sealed roll with 100 coins to a sealed box.

ABOUT THE PERTH MINT
