Silver Ounce 2022 Quokka, Proof, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Quokka, Proof

The Australian one ounce silver piece (abbreviated as 1 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion and commemorative coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This coin is part of a long running series of coins issued by the Perth Mint depicting native animals, and features the Australian Quokka. It is a coloured version of the 2021 Bullion Quokka.

A quokka is a small type of wallaby found mainly in the south west region of Western Australia, particularly Rottnest Island, an idyllic location 18 kilometres off the Perth coast. Thanks to its cute, smiley appearance, the quokka is known as the "world’s happiest animal". Willing to interact with human beings, it has become a hugely popular subject for "selfies" among thousands of annual visitors to the holiday hotspot.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2022 Quokka, Proof - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide but "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, where the Queen's portrait by Vladimir Gottwald was fifth).

The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen mother) in 1937.

Unlike on British coinage, the effigy is "uncouped" (includes the Queen's shoulders). In small letters on the left, the artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 1oz 9999 Ag 2022 1 DOLLAR.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. "1 oz 9999 Ag" means "one ounce of 99.99% silver" - Ag is abbreviated from the Latin word for silver, Argentum.

In the ground below left, the designer's initials JM (for Jennifer McKenna). On the right, the Perth Mint's traditional P mint mark.

Around above, the inscription QUOKKA.
