Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, however you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks as a result of the production process at the mint.
Kangaroo privy marks on these 2017 Australian Silver Koala coins mark the 10th anniversary of the Koala series, and celebrate two of the nation’s most iconic native species. Both marsupials, these creatures are widely recognized around the globe as symbols of the Australian nation.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Kangaroo Privy Australian Silver Koala Coin is the all-new design of the koala for the series. It features a single koala sitting along the ground, with a kangaroo privy mark located in the upper-left field of the design.
The obverse of all Australian Silver Koala coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy features on the obverse of all British and commonwealth coins, with this particular design coming from Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 and serving as the fourth-generation depiction used since 1952.
