The Silver Australian Koala coin debuted in 2007 from the Perth Mint, and with last year’s 10th anniversary release of the coins, the Perth Mint boosted the silver content to .9999 fine silver. This movement started with the 2016 issue of Silver Kangaroo coins for the first time, which also brought the first-ever use of .9999 fine silver in an annual-release bullion coin.
On the obverse of the Silver Australian Koala coin you’ll find the face of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fourth-generation portrait of Her Majesty which was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. It captures the Queen in right-profile relief with engravings of her name, the nation of issue, and face value of the coin.
The reverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Koala coin bears the exciting new design of the Koala. The koala is a marsupial species found on the Australian continent only. These creatures live on eucalyptus tree materials and spend countless hours each day sleeping, spending roughly 4 to 6 hours eating. Engravings here include the coin series name, year of issue, weight, purity, and metal content.
