Those buying silver in this collection today will find the series cut back down to 1 oz and 1 kilo choices. The 10 oz and 1/2 oz coins were last issued in 2015.
On the obverse of the 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Koala Coin is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted here with the Royal Diadem crown on her head and the Victorian coronation necklace around her neck.
This design of Queen Elizabeth II is the sixth to appear on Australian coins during her reign and the first change since 1998. Based upon Jody Clark’s design for British coins, this design of Queen Elizabeth II is the first on Australian coins since the 1960s to showcase her neckline and shoulders in the design as well.
The reverse of 2019 Silver Australian Koala Coins includes a new design as well, a feature of the coins since their 2007 introduction. The Silver Australian Koala coin for 2019 features the image of an alert koala sitting upright on the branch of a tree.
