Silver Australian Koala coins were first issued in 2007 as the second-ever silver bullion coin in the Perth Mint’s annual-release coins. The Silver Koala coin joined the Silver Kookaburra, and gained immediate popularity for its new designs of the beloved marsupial species on each new coin.

When the Perth Mint first issued its modern silver bullion coins with the Silver Kookaburra, the coins had .999 fine silver content. This continued with the 2007 issue of Silver Koalas, which were also available in .999 fine silver. The 2016 addition of the Silver Kangaroo brought .9999 fine silver content to Perth Mint bullion.
In 2017, the Perth Mint boosted the Silver Kookaburra with .9999 fine silver content. Now, in the twelfth year of release for the Silver Koala you’ll find .9999 fine silver content in this Perth Mint bullion series for the first time ever. This comes with yet another beautiful design of the Silver Koala.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Koala Coin is the new design of the beloved marsupial native to Australia. The koala spends as much as 18 to 20 hours per day sleeping, with most of its waking hours spent eating and lounging. This design captures a koala as it sits at the junction of a branch with the tree’s trunk.
The obverse of the 2018 Silver Australian Koala bears the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s right-profile portrait here is the fourth-generation design for British and commonwealth coins, and was designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
All 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Koala Coins here are near-perfect specimens. Coins with Mint State 69 grades from the NGC have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These range from minuscule hairlines to possible contact marks.
