1 oz 2017 Australia Koala NGC MS-70 First Day of Issue Silver Coin | Perth Mint
Buy with Confidence
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.
- Ships individually in an NGC protective plastic slab
- Consisting of 1 oz of 999 Fine Silver
- Obverse: Features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, the artist's initials, and her name, along with the legal tender value and the name of the country of issue
- Reverse: Features the depiction of a Koala sitting beside a Eucalyptus tree, the inscription "AUSTRALIAN KOALA" along with the year of the release, metal type, weight, and purity
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.
Australia is a haven for several beloved marsupials, which are unique to the land down under, including wombats and the iconic kangaroos.
This issue's reverse portrays the image of a koala sitting beside a eucalyptus tree, with another tree in the background. The detailed engraving on this coin lives up to the Perth Mint's high standards. The words "Australian Koala 2017 1 oz 999 Silver" and the Perth Mint mark "P" complete the design.

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 amongst 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.
