Obverse

Ian Rank-Broadley’s 1998 creation graces the obverse of the 2011 Proof Koala 5 oz Silver Coins, presenting Queen Elizabeth II in profile. Her Majesty is depicted wearing the illustrious Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, exuding regal elegance. Inscriptions include ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 8 DOLLARS.

Reverse

Depicted on the reverse of the 2011 Proof Australian Koala Silver Coin are two koalas. Captured in a serene moment, these adorable creatures can be seen nestled together at the fork of a eucalyptus tree’s trunk. Inscriptions read AUSTRALIAN KOALA, 2011 5 OZ 999 SILVER, and the P mint mark of Perth Mint.

History

Koalas have long been revered in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. Indigenous communities have traditional stories, legends, and Dreamtime narratives associated with koalas, depicting their significance as spiritual and ancestral beings. Koalas are seen as sacred animals, embodying wisdom, harmony, and connection to the land. They are often featured in indigenous artwork, carvings, and ceremonies as a representation of cultural heritage.
