With the arrival of 2011, the Australian Koala Series celebrated its fifth milestone by introducing a novel coin selection. Crafted explicitly for numismatic enthusiasts, this extraordinary 5 oz proof silver coin emerged as the fifth alternative among the range of releases that year, complementing the existing quartet of BU options in the series. Today, you have the opportunity to get 2011 Proof Australian Koala 5 oz Silver Coins online in certified condition at Provident Metals.
The Australian Koala bullion series debuted in 2007. Originally just a BU series, this collection has grown to feature various silver weights and include unique options such as gilded coins, proof coins, and high-relief proof coins.
Ian Rank-Broadley’s 1998 creation graces the obverse of the 2011 Proof Koala 5 oz Silver Coins, presenting Queen Elizabeth II in profile. Her Majesty is depicted wearing the illustrious Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, exuding regal elegance. Inscriptions include ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 8 DOLLARS.
Depicted on the reverse of the 2011 Proof Australian Koala Silver Coin are two koalas. Captured in a serene moment, these adorable creatures can be seen nestled together at the fork of a eucalyptus tree’s trunk. Inscriptions read AUSTRALIAN KOALA, 2011 5 OZ 999 SILVER, and the P mint mark of Perth Mint.
Koalas have long been revered in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. Indigenous communities have traditional stories, legends, and Dreamtime narratives associated with koalas, depicting their significance as spiritual and ancestral beings. Koalas are seen as sacred animals, embodying wisdom, harmony, and connection to the land. They are often featured in indigenous artwork, carvings, and ceremonies as a representation of cultural heritage.
This 2011 Proof Australian Koala 5 oz Silver Coin is a PF69 specimen. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor flaws.
