Direct Coins is pleased to present the spectacular 1 kilo Australian Koala Silver Proof Coin, featuring one of Australia’s most loved marsupials.
The koala is well-adapted to Australia’s dry conditions as they do not actually require water to drink. Receiving all the moisture they need from eucalyptus leaves, koalas spend most of their time in these trees for this reason, and because they are known to sleep among the shaded branches for up to 20 hours each day.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 500 of the 2015 Australian Koala 1 Kilo Silver Proof Coin.
The coin's reverse depicts an adult koala sitting in the fork of a eucalyptus tree, amid a rural landscape. The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOALA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the 2015 year-date. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
Each coin is housed in a classic grey display case with a specially designed illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
