Australia’s Adorable 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 details provide a 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 50.9 mm coin struck in five ounces of 99.99% pure silver.

Your 2020 Australia Koala High Relied Five-Ounce Silver Proof was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. It will also come displayed in its original government packaging from the mint and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

Just 500 of these wonderful Koala coins will be released by Perth Mint in 2020.
