Koalas, often inaccurately referred to as koala bears, are arboreal herbivores. Like many other unique animal species from the Australian continent, the koala is a marsupial that is native to the continent. Koalas are the only extant members of the family Phascolarctidae.
While the koala appears to be a docile and cuddly animal, make no mistake, these animals can react aggressively and devastatingly to threats. This includes threats to itself and its young Joey. When threatened, koalas can use the long claws on their hands and feet, typically used for climbing trees, to fight back.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of these 2022 1 oz Proof Niue Gold Koala and Joey Coins. This design element shows the Queen in right-profile relief in the popular 1998 design from Ian Rank-Broadley. Originally created for the Royal Mint, the design shows the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
A koala and its young Joey are featured in the reverse design of the 2022 Proof Niue Gold Koala and Joey Coins. The design shows an adult koala with a tight grip on a tree as it climbs upward with its young Joey on its back.
These 2022 1 oz Proof Niue Gold Koala and Joey Coins are available to you for purchase with individual packaging. Each coin comes with a black presentation box and arrives in a themed shipper from the mint. There is a numbered Certificate of Authenticity available with each coin. These are proof specimens with frosted designs and mirrored fields.
