One of Australia's Cuddliest Creatures in Spectacular High Relief!
We'll be honest -- if there wasn't already strong competition coming from the kangaroo, we'd pronounce the koala the most adorable marsupial in Australia. When you see one on a page, on a screen or in person, there's no way you can't crack a smile! That's why we love it when the Perth Mint introduces their annual Australian Koala Silver Proof design -- and 2017's entry definitely makes the list of our all-time favorites!
- RELAXING IN THE SHADE -- Designed by Thomas Vaughn, 2017's Koala is standing in the shade of a eucalyptus tree, spying the ground for a tasty leaf or two. Fortunately, this search will be rewarded soon if the leaf on the left is any indication! Intricate details in both the foreground and background provide a perfect setting for this gorgeous mammal.
- PROOF MINTED IN HIGH RELIEF -- The Perth Mint is known around the world as one of the leaders in high-relief proof production. Beginning as a hand-selected, one-ounce planchet of 99.9% pure silver, each coin is struck multiple times by polished dies to produce a design with incredible depth and frosted features over a mirror-like surface inside of a deep, concave field.
- AUSTRALIAN LEGAL TENDER -- Each Silver Koala High Relief Proof is one dollar Australian legal tender, a fact reflected on the coin's obverse along with Ian Rank-Broadley's profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. To find the proof's year, weight and purity, it's all right under the koala's feet on the reverse!
- LIMITED EDITION PACKAGING -- Your 2017 1-oz Silver Koala High Relief Proof will come in special mint-issued limited edition packaging. Encased in a colorful themed shipper, your proof is secured inside a gray Perth Mint-branded display case along with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
- A LIMITED MINTAGE! -- Out of the limited mintage of 10,000 proofs, only 9,000 will come in this colorful limited edition packaging!
Just like its mates at the Perth Mint -- the Kangaroo and the Wedge-Tailed Eagle -- Koalas are a perennial hit with collectors. Add in this proof's stunning high-relief design and you have a coin that's sure to quickly climb out of our vaults. Don't rest on this one -- order your 2017 1-oz Silver Koala High Relief Proof today before someone else snatches it away!
