Full Description

A wonderful addition to the Perth Mint’s collection of Wildlife coins, the ten-ounce Australian Koala coin is struck on .999 fine silver. 

Obverse

The Obverse of the silver coin depicts the profile of Queen Elizabeth II. Shown around the Queen are inscriptions denoting the coin silver content, denomination and the year it was struck.

Reverse

Australia’s unique biodiversity is one of the main reasons so many visit the country: capturing that appeal is the one ounce Silver Australian Koala which is part of the Mint’s Wildlife series. Each year the lovable animal is depicted in various designs that change yearly.  Vastly different from previous depictions of the lovable animal, the 2015 Reverse designs pictures a koala perched on a eucalyptus tree; but what makes the design unique is the textured, long hair of the koala which is difficult to produce with clarity. When first seen by European settlers, they were thought to be tree-climbing bears, hence the term koala bears: we know today that they are in fact marsupials more closely related to kangaroos and wombats.
