Don’t Sleep On this Koala Or You Could Miss Out!

Even as COVID-19 restrictions were being lifted, it was still nearly impossible for Americans to hop on a plane and fly to Australia — even if it WAS just to attend the 2021 Brisbane Money Expo held May 1 & 2 at the Royal International Convention Centre. That’s where the world-renowned Perth Mint was releasing these colorized Koala coins to convention-goers. One of the world’s most famous coin series, the Koala has been a fan favorite for years. But sadly, for American collectors, securing one of these beauties was just a dream.

Well dream no more because thanks to our connections in the coin world, we managed to secure a small cache of these coveted coins and we’re making them available to our customers on a first-come, first-served basis!

A Sleepy Koala Struck in Highly Pure Silver

Magnificently struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.99% silver, this adorable legal-tender $1 coin features a colorized image of a sleepy Koala resting in the crook of a eucalyptus tree. One wonder how this tired little fella can avoid falling out of the tree as he catches some shuteye. Around the top rim of the coin an inscription reads, “AUSTRALIAN KOALA” while the coin’s year date, and silver weight & fineness can be seen along the coin’s bottom rim. Just to the left of the design the Perth Mint’s famous “P” mint mark is clearly visible.

Perfect Uncirculated Coins From Among the First Released

The coins available here have all been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded coins have ZERO imperfections — showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.

Plus, each will coin will be sonically sealed in an acrylic holder and will be accompanied by its original mint packaging that consists of a classic display case with a clear lid stored inside a special Brisbane Money Expo 2021 shipper. A numbered Certificate of Authenticity from the mint will also be included.
