2019 Australia $8 5-oz Silver Koala High Relief Proof
Australia’s Adorable Koala Returns for 2019!
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!
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! The 2019 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 to grab some of the hanging vegetation for his lunch! Intricate high relief details in both the foreground and background provide a perfect setting for this gorgeous mammal. The design is beautifully engraved in deep detail on this impressive 50.60 mm coin struck in five ounces of highly pure 99.99% silver.
Your 2019 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.
