The Perth Mint started the concept of using native, endemic wildlife species on annual-release silver bullion coins in 1990. This year saw the mint shift the Gold Australian Nugget Series to become the Gold Australian Kangaroo bullion series and brought with it the introduction of the Silver Australian Kookaburra. More than a decade later in 2007, the mint expanded to include the Silver Australian Koala.
All of the 1 oz Silver Australian Koalas in this product listing earned Mint State 70 certifications. The NGC assigns an MS70 certification to coins that have full, original mint luster and present with no detracting flaws of any kind on the design elements or surface areas of the coin.
This listing from Silver.com offers 1 oz Silver Koalas chosen at random. We select your coins once your payment has been processed. Please note that the coins have new designs on the reverse each year. We cannot guarantee the date mark and design of the coin you receive, or whether or not it features additional labels. Coins struck from 2007 to 2017 have .999 fine silver content, while all those from 2018 onward have .9999 fine silver content. If you buy multiples, you may get coins that match for the date, design, purity, and additional labels.
Queen Elizabeth II has featured on the obverse of the 1 oz Silver Australian Koala in one of two designs since 2007. The first 10 years of release (2007-2017) saw the use of the Ian Rank-Broadley depiction of the Queen on the coins. Those coins issued since 2018 have the Jody Clark bust of Queen Elizabeth II.
Koalas are shown on the reverse of the 1 oz Silver Australian Koalas each year. The Perth Mint always offers a new design of the koala on the reverse, at times alternating between showing just one koala and showing two adults or a mother and its joey.
