The $200 Australian Gold Coins were a limited release legal tender coin produced by the Royal Australian Mint with a face value of $200. In 1980, the coin was released with the Arnold Machin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the head of the British Commonwealth. The reverse depicts an Australian Koala sitting in an eucalyptus tree, sculpted by Stuart Devlin.
During the years they were made, the $200 gold coins featured various designs, the most iconic being the Koala design. They contain 10g of 22ct gold (91.67% pure gold), which is equivalent to 0.2948 ounces of 99.99% pure gold.
The coins were released in uncirculated and proof finish. The Mint continued to make the koala gold $200 coins each year until 1986, but in 1985 the portrait of the Queen changed from the work of Arnold Machin to that of Raphael Maklouf.
