The 2012 gilded edition of the popular Australian Koala Silver Coin Series depicts a charming new interpretation of Australia’s favourite tree-dwelling marsupials.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in specimen quality.
The reverse design depicts an adult koala sleeping on the branch of a eucalyptus tree and includes The Perth Mint’s famous ‘P’ mintmark.
The koala design features precision-applied 24-carat gilding, a spectacular numismatic treatment creating wonderful visual appeal.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 10,000 of these coins.
The coin is housed in a classic display case, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Each case comes in a coloured, illustrated box-shipper.
