2018 Australia 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Koala NGC MS70 First Day Of Issue
The Australian Koala Is Back for an 11th Adorable Year!
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 Silver Australian Koala design -- and 2018's entry definitely makes the list of our all-time favorites!
- ON THE HUNT FOR SOME TASTY LEAVES! -- Created by Natasha Muhl, this one-year-only design for the 2018 Australian Koala finds our furry friend clutching a eucalyptus tree branch. With one clawed foot free, this koala is about ready to grab a bunch of gum leaves for lunch! Intricate details in both the foreground and background provide a perfect setting for this gorgeous mammal.
- EXPERTLY STRUCK IN 99.9% FINE SILVER -- With their world-renowned attention to detail, the artisans of the Perth Mint strike each Silver Australian Koala bullion coin with care, transforming planchets of 99.9% fine silver into gorgeous works of art!
- AUSTRALIAN LEGAL TENDER -- Each Silver Koala bullion coin 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!
- CERTIFIED FLAWLESS -- Your coin will come certified Mint State-70 (MS70) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly graded 2018 1-oz Silver Australian Koala will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended! In addition, your Silver Australian Koala will be certified First Day of Issue (FDI) by NGC -- independent authentication that your coin was released by the Perth Mint during the premier day of the series' issue. Finally, your coin will be sonically sealed in an acrylic holder, giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail.
- AN UNCOMMON LIMITED MINTAGE! -- It's unusual for popular bullion coins to have limited production runs. That's why this 2018 1-oz Silver Australian Koala bullion coin's mintage of 300,000 already sets it apart from the pack!
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 coin's unique design and you have a smash that's sure to quickly climb out of our vaults. Don't rest on this one -- order your 2018 1-oz Silver Australian Koala bullion coin today before someone else snatches it away!
