Direct Coins is pleased to present the stunning 1oz Australian Koala Silver Proof High Relief Coin, featuring one of Australia’s most loved marsupials.
The koala is a warm-blooded marsupial that lives mainly on the eastern coast of Australia.
Dependent on whether it is found in the southern parts of eastern Australia or in the northern parts, its size and colour will vary. This unique animal sleeps for up to 19 hours a day due to its low metabolic rate, and can live for 20 or more years.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
An issue limit of 9,000 applies to the 2015 Australian Koala 1oz Silver Proof High Relief Coins, and will be released in this packaging from a maximum mintage of 10,000.
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.
The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
The coin is housed in a classic grey display case within an illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
