This extraordinary 3oz silver proof gilded coin showcases one of Australia’s best-known native marsupials- the koala. Often perceived as a cuddly animal and generally sleepy during the daytime, the koala has an appealing bear-like face and thick grey fur. Spending much of its life in gum trees where it consumes large quantities of leaves, the koala can nevertheless be experienced close-up at sanctuaries and zoos throughout Australia.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 3oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,000 of the Australian Koala – 15th Anniversary 2022 3oz Silver Gilded Coin.

DESIGN

Celebrating the Koala’s 15th anniversary in silver, this coin features a 24- carat gilded portrayal of the sleepy creature lying on the bough of a gum tree. As well as the inscription ‘KOALA 15TH ANNIVERSARY’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design includes the coin’s weight, purity and year-date.

The coin’s obverse bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

TECHNICAL NOTES

Elements of this design have been gilded in 24-carat gold, superbly combining two celebrated minting techniques.

PRESENTATION

The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged within an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
