2017 Australia 100 Dollar 1-oz Gold Koala High Relief NGC PF70UCAM First Day Of Issue
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 Gold 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 99.99% pure gold, 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 Gold Koala High Relief Proof is 100 dollars 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. And the Perth Mint's mint mark? Look to the left of the koala to see the mint's signifying "P"!
- CERTIFIED PERFECT-- Your coin will come graded Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70 UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly-graded 2017 Gold Koala High-Relief Proof will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended! In addition, your proof will be certified First Day of Issue (FDI) by NGC -- independent authentication that your coin was released by the mint during the premier day of the series' issue. Your proof will also be sonically sealed in an acrylic case with a special koala label, giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail.
- A LIMITED MINTAGE! -- Only 500 of these gorgeous proofs will be issued for Australian Koala fans worldwide!
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 Gold Koala High Relief Proof today before someone else snatches it away!
