Quokkas are wallaby-like marsupials found mainly in the south west region of Western Australia, particularly Rottnest Island, an idyllic location 18 kilometres off the coast near Perth. About the same size of domestic cats, the quokka has thick, grey-brown fur, a broad face, shiny black eyes and round furry ears.

Thanks to its cute, smiley appearance and an acceptance of humans, the quokka has become a popular subject for ‘selfies’ in the age of social media.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the Quokka 2023 1oz Silver Proof Coloured Coin.


The coin’s reverse portrays a coloured representation of two quokkas at a pool of water fringed by rocks and Rottnest Island daisies. The design includes the inscription ‘QUOKKA’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The obverse of the coin bears The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of her reign, as well as the coin’s weight, fineness, monetary denomination and the 2023 year-date.


The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
