Charming 2018 Koala Design by Perth Mint Designer Natasha Muhl
A meticulously detailed koala is depicted on the reverse, sitting on a wide branch of a flowering eucalyptus tree, with clusters of gum leaves and blooms in the background. The Perth Mint's traditional "P" Mint mark appears above the branch. The image frame contains the inscriptions "AUSTRALIAN KOALA" and "2018 5 OZ 9999 SILVER."
The obverse effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is credited to sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. The inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "8 DOLLARS" encircle the portrait.
