The coin’s reverse incorporates an inner panel design of a pygmy possum on a banksia branch, detailed in pure Australian opal. The outer panel of the coin depicts banksia leaves and blossoms, a waxing gibbous moon and the Southern Cross – a renowned star group which is only visible in the Southern hemisphere.

Issued as Australian legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

The 2013 Pygmy Possum 1oz Silver Proof Coin is presented in a prestigious display case with a light, which turns on as the case is opened to represent the moon shining down on the nocturnal creature.
