The obverse displays the profile of Queen Elizabeth II by designer Ian Rank-Broadley.

His initial's "IRB" are inscribed directly below the Queen's neck.

The reverse side of the silver bullion coin receives a new portrait of a Koala in different pose and setting, each year.

Across the top of the silver bullion coin are the words, "AUSTRALIA KOALA."

At the bottom of the half oz. Silver Koala coin is the Year of Issue, Weight of "1/2OZ" and the purity of the silver coin is "999 SILVER."

Located at the lower left, (narrated in the first person point of view) is the Mint Mark of a "P" representing The Perth Mint.

The edge, often considered the third side of the coin, of the 1/2 oz. silver coin is Reeded.

Note: The proof-like finish and limited mintage of the 1/2 oz. Silver Koala bullion coin can give the coin a higher premium in off years. Purchasing the silver koala bullion coin in it's current year of production is the best way to purchase the coin closest to its spot price in silver.
