Annually Changing Koala Designs

As previously mentioned, each year the Perth Mint selects a different reverse featuring a Koala in a different pose. This has allowed for a range of designs featuring the less than cuddly marsupial over the series 14 years of issue. The obverse features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II currently being used by the Perth Mint. Ever since its introduction, the series has been struck in 1 oz. of .999 fine silver, but has seen the release of special issues including gold high relief proofs in addition to fractional gold proof issues, as well as silver gilded pieces. These special releases vary year to year.  

The 2017 release features a lone Koala clutching the trunk of a eucalyptus tree on a stylized background, while the 2018 Australia silver koala portrayed a loveable duo of a koala carrying its baby.  The 2018 Australia silver koala coin was the first Perth Mint Koala coin to be struck in two full ounces of .9999 fine silver. The 2018 Australia Silver Koala also boasts a high relief variant that shows a single koala moving through the branches of a eucalyptus tree.  Beyond the series’ annually changing designs, each unique issue is available in various release types and grades. The Australian Koala coin series is struck in both silver and gold and is also available in a myriad of different sizes ranging from ¼ ounce all the way up to one whole kilogram!  In addition, there are different grades and finish types. This diversity gives anyone the ability to purchase one of these Perth Mint Koala coin, making it easy to add to, or start, an Australian Koala Coin collection!
