COMMENTS

An achiral coloring is identical to its reflection. The Schläfli symbols for the regular icosahedron and regular dodecahedron are {3,5} and {5,3} respectively. They are mutually dual.
There are 60 elements in the automorphism group of the regular dodecahedron/icosahedron that are not in the rotation group. They divide into five conjugacy classes. The first formula is obtained by averaging the cycle indices after replacing x_i^j with n^j according to the Pólya enumeration theorem.
Conjugacy Class Count Odd Cycle Indices
Inversion 1 x_2^10
Edge rotation* 15 x_1^4x_2^8 Asterisk indicates that the
Vertex rotation* 20 x_2^1x_6^3 operation is followed by an
Small face rotation* 12 x_10^2 inversion.
Large face rotation* 12 x_10^2

FORMULA

a(n) = n^2 * (15*n^10 + n^8 + 20*n^2 + 24) / 60.
a(n) = 1*C(n,1) + 1046*C(n,2) + 130734*C(n,3) + 3682656*C(n,4) + 41467050*C(n,5) + 238531284*C(n,6) + 791012880*C(n,7) + 1603496160*C(n,8) + 2021060160*C(n,9) + 1546836480*C(n,10) + 658627200*C(n,11) + 119750400*C(n,12), where the coefficient of C(n,k) is the number of achiral colorings using exactly k colors.
