Minted in Canberra between the years of 1980 to 1986, the $200 Koala gold coin series were produced in both proof and uncirculated grades. The issue price of the uncirculated coin was $245, while the proof coin listed at $295. Between 1980 and 1985, the koala artworked changed yearly, while the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth remained as the well-known Arnold Machin design. In the last year, the Queen’s portrait featured Raphael Maklouf’s design. Issue prices of the coins varied year to year based on the underlying gold price movements.
