One Dollar 2021 Dreaming Down Under - Koala, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2021 Dreaming Down Under - Koala

The one dollar coin denomination (written as $1) was introduced in Australia in 1984, replacing the earlier banknotes. The original reverse design by Stuart Devlin on circulating coins has not been changed since its introduction. The denomination is also often used to issue circulating commemorative coins with various reverses.

The denomination is also used by both the Royal Australian Mint and the Perth Mint to issue an extensive range of collector coins which are legal tender in Australia but are not intended for circulation - such as this one. The coin is larger than the normal $1 coins.

This coin is the second issue in the Perth Mint's Dreaming Down Under series of coins and features a baby koala.

The Mint says about it:
Like all young marsupials, a baby koala is known as a joey - a shy and defenceless version of its adult protectors. Beautifully realised, the artistry on this postal numismatic cover captures the creature’s vulnerability to perfection. Struck by The Perth Mint from aluminium bronze, the coin pictures a cute baby koala asleep in a fleece-lined twig basket - a prop that has created a popular trend in newborn photography among parents all around the world.

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown and the Victoria Coronation necklace worn for her Coronation. This is her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide and "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, in "uncouped" version - showing the Queen's shoulders and not terminating at the neck as the normal version.

On the left, in small letters on the Queen's shoulder, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II 2021 AUSTRALIA · 1 DOLLAR ·.
