The Australian continent is home to a wide range of flora and fauna the likes of which do not naturally occur outside the South Pacific, and in some cases, the Australian continent itself.

Koalas largely inhabit the coastal areas of mainland Australia. The creatures are instantly recognizable with black, stout noses and thick, tailless bodies. Of particular note is the coloration of the fur on the koala and the large head with round, fluffy ears.
The species is one of many marsupials that inhabit the Australian continent. Most koala populations live along the eastern and southern coast of Australia from Queensland and New South Wales to Victoria and South Australia. It was once believed that northern populations of koalas were a separate subspecies, but that remains disputed to this day.
The obverse side of 2022 Proof Niue Silver Koala and Joey Coins features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in a design that originally featured as the fourth-generation British design from the Royal Mint. It was designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley and used on British coins through 2015. Today, it remains popular on coins for the nations like Niue, Tuvalu, and the Cook Islands.
On the reverse face of the 2022 1 oz Proof Silver Koala and Joey Coins, you will find the image of an adult koala and its young Joey. As a marsupial, koalas give birth to underdeveloped young that spend many of the early weeks of life living in the mother’s pouch. Beyond that, young koalas stay with their moms through the first six to seven months of life.
These 2022 1 oz Proof Niue Silver Koala and Joey Coins come with individual packaging. Each coin has a protective capsule and ships in a black presentation box. The coin, capsule, and box are available with a koala-themed shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
