It Looks like Australia’s Koala Has Put On A Little Weight!
The Koala bear is one of Australia’s most recognizable animals – so much so that it even serves as a mascot for Qantas Airlines, the flagship carrier for Australia and New Zealand. And, since 2007, the adorable if slightly cranky little bear has been the theme of one of the world’s most popular silver coin series. Issued annually by the prestigious Perth Mint, the Koala coins feature new, one-year-only designs of Australia’s adorable marsupial.
In 2018 the Perth Mint decided to release a special silver Koala that has collectors going crazy: They struck a magnificent 2-ounce silver bullion double-thick “peidfort” Koala! Not only is this the first 2-ounce silver Koala piedfort ever struck, it is also the FIRST 2-ounce silver bullion piedfort coin ever released by the Perth Mint! It’s an absolute must-have for collectors – especially Koala collectors and fans of the Perth Mint’s animal series of coins.
Each legal-tender coin is struck in two full ounces of pure 99.99% silver and comes graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) to be in perfect Mint State-70 (MS70) condition. In addition NGC has also certified that these are early Releases (ER) coins, meaning that they are among the first struck by the mint and were verified within the first 30 days of issue. Each coin has also been encapsulated in a special coin holder with an exclusive Australia label.
Koala collectors and silver stackers alike are sure to make these coins one of our most popular sellers. And with just 75,000 struck for worldwide release, the demand is sure to exceed supply! And one – or several – to your cart today!
