Australia’s Adorable Golden Koala Returns for 2020!
Koala bears have a well-deserved reputation for doing everything at a slow pace. But, as some animal experts have pointed out, Koalas are herbivores who spend their days high up in eucalyptus trees eating leaves — and you don’t need to move very fast to catch a tree! One area where they DO move fast is on these coins struck by Australia’s world-renowned Perth Mint where the coins of its annual Koala series are among the most adorable releases to hit the market each year!
The one-year-only designs of the cute little marsupial just makes you want to grab the little critter and smother it with hugs! The new design for the 2020 Australian Koala finds our unhurried marsupial perched atop a tree branch while it looks out across an unseen Australian landscape in search of more eucalyptus leaves to snack on. The intricate high-relief details with mirrored concave ﬁelds and frosty designs that sit high above for a maximum amount of contrast. It’s the perfect setting for this gorgeous mammal that has been seriously threatened this year by wildfires that have consumed large parts of its habitat. The design is beautifully engraved on this impressive coin struck in two ounces of 99.99% pure gold.
