South Australia (abbreviated SA) is in the south central part of the country. It covers some of the most arid parts of the island continent and is the fourth largest of Australia's six states and two territories. SA is bordered to the west by Western Australia, to the north by the Northern Territory and Queensland, to the east by Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, and along the south by the Great Australian Bight and the Southern Ocean.

With nearly 1.6 million people, the state comprises less than 10% of the Australian population and ranks fifth in population among the states and territories. The majority of its people reside in the state capital and largest city, Adelaide, with most of the remainder settled in fertile areas along the south-eastern coast and River Murray. The state's origins are unique in Australia as a freely-settled, planned British province rather than a convict settlement. Official settlement began on 28 December 1836, when the state was proclaimed at The Old Gum Tree by Governor John Hindmarsh.

The coin’s obverse depicts a full color view of historic St. Peter's Cathedral in Adelaide. The design includes South Australia’s official animal, the hairy-nosed wombat, and Sturt's Desert Pea, its floral emblem.
