The Australian Platinum Koala coin series was introduced by the Perth Mint in 1988 following the June 1987 approval by the Australian government of the minting of platinum coins.
On the reverse of the 1 oz Australian Platinum Koala coin, you’ll find the image of a koala. These marsupials are a unique symbol of Australia’s wildlife not found outside the continent. The designs on the face changes annually like other Perth Mint programs, and popular designers include artists and engravers James Brown, Raphael Maklouf, Miranda Cornell, and Darryl Bellotti.
The obverse of Australian Platinum Koala coins features one of two designs of Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait. Coins dated from 1988 to 1997 will feature the third-generation depiction of the Queen, created in 1984 by Raphael Maklouf. Those coins dated 1998-present feature the fourth generation right-profile portrait of the Queen done by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.
