Summer in Australia, which is in the southern hemisphere, takes place in the months of December, January and February. Hot days, endless blue skies and beautiful beaches are a hallmark of this season.
The Red Kangaroo is the most iconic of all Australia's animals, instantly recognised as a symbol of Australia. The Red Kangaroo is mostly nocturnal, resting during the day. These beautiful creatures are endowed with a pouch in which they carry their young, and powerful hind legs that allow them to hop great distances. The square coin’s reverse depicts a Red Kangaroo against the background of an Australian beach scene. The inscription SUMMER is incorporated into the design.

The possum is a small to medium-sized marsupial native to Australia. Usually active at night and preferring to sleep during the day, this creature nests high up in the trees.

The Green Tree Frog is one of the most recognisable and iconic frogs of the continent. The species is docile and well suited to living in both urban and tropical environments. This amphibian is nocturnal, becoming active during the early evening. During the day they prefer cool, dark and moist areas to sleep, such as tree holes or rock crevices. The coin’s reverse depicts an Australian Green Tree Frog on a branch, against a background of the winter night sky and rain. The inscription WINTER is incorporated into the uniquely shaped square design. Mintage: 3,300.
