Why purchase this 2021-P Australian Quokka 1 oz. Silver Brilliant Uncirculated coin?
The Perth Mint launched a new bullion series in 2020 dedicated to the Quokka, an Australian native marsupial that primarily inhabits Rottnest Island and Bald Island, which are located off the western coast of the continent. The quokka has gained recent social media notoriety as the "the world's happiest animal," for selfie photos that include the smiling face of the enchanting cat-sized creature. The 2021 release of the series features a newly designed, adorable quokka image.
Heartwarming Quokka Design
Obverse: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is portrayed facing right on the obverse, with the famed Royal Diamond Diadem resting amongst her curling tresses. The image is encircled by a wide frame containing the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" "1OZ 9999 AG," "2021" and "1 DOLLAR." This rendition of the longest reigning monarch in British history was created in 2015 by acclaimed British Royal Mint sculptor Jody Clark.
Reverse: A mother quokka and her joey are illustrated in a natural setting on the reverse, posed facing forward with their signature smiles on their faces. The creatures appear to be enjoying a beautiful day, surrounded by stylized Rottnest Island daisies, while a bobtail lizard crosses their path, and two butterflies hover above. The image is accompanied by the simple overhead inscription, "QUOKKA," along with the Perth Mint mark "P" nestled within the foliage at right.
