2019 Australia $1 1-oz Silver Koala High Relief Proof
There’s Nothing Like a Big Bowl of Koala!
If you ever get the chance to see a group of Koala bears, you’ll notice that they don’t seem to be in a hurry to do anything. They slowly go about their business munching on eucalyptus leaves and perhaps pausing from time to time to commiserate with each other about the indignities foisted upon them by Qantas Airlines. 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!
2019 marks the 13th year of the popular Australia Silver Koala series and this year’s one-year-only design of the cute little marsupial just makes you want to grab the little critter and smother it with hugs! Struck in spectacular high relief, this One-Ounce Silver Koala features a bowl-shaped design that was expertly crafted by Australia’s Perth Mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details that rise high off their mirror-like surfaces.
The new design finds our unhurried marsupial sitting on a tree branch, his head cocked to one side in an expression of curiosity as eucalyptus leaves flutter in the breeze. It almost looks like he’s smiling as he slowly prepares himself to grab some of the hanging vegetation for his lunch! Intricate details in both the foreground and background provide a perfect setting for this gorgeous mammal. The design is beautifully engraved on this impressive 32.6 mm coin struck in highly pure 99.99% silver.
The 2019 Australia One-Ounce Silver Koala High Relief Proof is an attractive way to add 2019’s new one-year-only design to your collection. It’s also a great way to add high-purity silver to your collection. But no more than 10,000 will ever be struck, so if you want to secure your “bowl of Koala,” you need to act now!
