Silver Koala Coins are one of the younger annual-release specimens from the Perth Mint, but no less popular than some of its contemporaries. The Gold Kangaroo is the oldest, debuting in 1986, followed by the Silver Kookaburra in 1990. The Silver Koalas debuted in 2007, and follow Perth Mint design protocol with new reverse imagery each year.
On the obverse of all 2017 Silver Australian Koala Coins you’ll find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this is the popular fourth-generation image of Her Majesty still in use on Australian coinage.
The reverse of the 2017 1 oz Kangaroo Privy Silver Australian Koala Coin features the latest koala design, which captures the image of a lone koala as it sits on the ground of the Australian Outback. Included on the reverse is the popular hopping kangaroo design which now serves as the primary image of the Silver Australian Kangaroo bullion coin, but here is featured as a small privy mark in the upper left.
