The Koala silver coin series from the Perth Mint was launched in 2007 and quickly became a favourite of both investors and collectors. The design on the reverse changes annually but always features one of Australia’s most beloved creatures in its natural habitat.

The NGC ( Numismatic Guaranty Company) uses the internationally recognized Sheldon grading scale, which ranges from 1 to 70 to grade coin conditions. The MS-70 (which stands for Mint State with a 70 grade) is the highest score a coin may achieve. It’s alternatively referred to as Perfect Uncirculated.

COIN HIGHLIGHTS

  • Ships individually in an NGC protective coin slab
  • Consisting of 1 oz of 999 Pure Silver
  • Obverse: Features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II along with the artist’s initials, her name, the face value, and the name of the country of issue
  • Reverse: Features the depiction of a Koala walking on a Eucalyptus tree branch, the inscription “AUSTRALIAN KOALA”, the Perth Mint “P” mint mark along with the metal type, weight, purity and year of the release

The reverse face of this issue is an image of an adult koala walking on a branch of a eucalyptus tree. Its stance tells us that it is in no hurry to get where it is going. The details of the tree limb, the Koala’s fur, and the attention to detail of this design make it the perfect addition to any collection. The words “Australian Koala 2016 1 oz 999 Silver” and the Perth Mint mark “P” complete the design.

The spirit of the Koala bear is embedded within Australian national lore, with the lovable animal featured heavily in the foundation of the continent. As a result, the Koala, an exclusive inhabitant of Australia, is just as embedded in nationalistic pride and identity. Thus, it is only fitting that the world-renowned Perth Mint chose the Koala to adorn their dynamic and evolving series, which was released in 1987 and rose to critical acclaim.

This design continues the tradition of the Perth Mint Koala silver coin. This perennial favourite is one of the most popular designs by the Perth Mint and features one of Australia’s most lovable creatures in various poses and aspects of its habitat.

Australia is a haven for several beloved marsupials, which are unique to the land down under, including wombats and the iconic kangaroos.

ABOUT THE PERTH MINT

The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint’s 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are among one the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus, to name a few), and the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
