The Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coin is available on an annual basis from the Perth Mint. The coin series was introduced in 2007 by the mint and is produced primarily in 1 oz and 1 Kilo silver options. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase near-perfect Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coins online at Provident Metals.
Like the Australian Kookaburra Silver Coins, the Australian Koala Silver Coins are available with a new design on the reverse face each year. To date, the Perth Mint has not repeated an image of the koala on this face of the coins and strives to produce the coins as bullion, proof, and even high-relief proof items.
On the obverse side of the Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coin is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queens portrait is regularly updated on the obverse face of Australian denominations. The Australian Koalas feature either the 1998 design from Ian Rank-Broadley or the 2015 design from Jody Clark. Both images originally appeared on British coinage before featuring on Australian coins. The Ian Rank-Broadley design was used on Australian Koalas from 2007 to 2017 and the Jody Clark design since 2015.
The reverse face of Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coins bears the image of a koala. One of the many marsupial species native to the Australian continent, the koala is depicted in a new design element each year.
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 as the third and final branch mint facility of the Royal Mint of England on the Australian continent. It was intended to serve alongside the Sydney Mint and Melbourne Mint. In 1965, when the Royal Australian Mint was founded as the new sovereign mint of an independent Australia, the Perth Mint was transferred to the state government of Western Australia as a state-owned entity.
These Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coins are in near-perfect condition. The coins have Mint State 69 certifications from the PCGS or NGC indicating the presence of full, original mint luster and no more than two minor detracting flaws. Please note that all coins are chosen at random once your payment has been processed. If you buy more than one, it is possible to get several coins with the same dates and designs.
