Continuing its annual release of Australian Koala coins, the Perth Mint’s 2016 1 oz Koala Silver Coin is now available for purchase. Each Koala is a part of the Perth Mint’s Australian Silver Bullion Coin Program. These silver coins contain 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver and have a limited mintage of 300,000 pieces.
An endearing image of a koala walking across the branch of a eucalyptus tree is on the reverse of each silver coin. Inscribed around the koala are the words “AUSTRALIAN KOALA” and “2016 1oz 999 SILVER.”
The koala inhabits the eucalyptus woodlands of Australia and its diet consists of the leaves of the eucalyptus trees. These native Australian marsupials can sleep up to 20 hours per day, which is partly caused by the low nutritional value of their diet. Because of its unique appearance, the koala is one of the most widely recognized symbols of Australia.
The obverse of the Koala features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, created by Ian Rank-Broadley. On Sept. 9, 2015, Queen Elizabeth II surpassed Queen Victoria as the longest reigning British Monarch in history. “ELIZABETH II”, “AUSTRALIA”, and “1 DOLLAR” are engraved around the elegant image.
This 1 oz Silver Koala is perfect for both investors and collectors, due to the coin’s global recognition, collectability, and high-quality production by one of the most trusted Sovereign Mints in the world. Backed by the Australian government, the coin’s weight and .999 silver purity are assured, making this an ideal option for Precious Metals portfolios.
Each 1 oz Koala is manufactured in Brilliant Uncirculated Condition and packaged in an original mint plastic capsule for protection. Coins will arrive to you in the exact condition they were received from the mint.
