  • Description:

    The Koala is another iconic figure many associate to Australia and rightfully so. The koala bear is indigenous to the Outback and has been a beloved animal for hundreds of years. Using their incredibly adorable features such as their claw-like paws or short noses, these bears have lured visitors to Australia for the last decade, increasing the country's tourism rate. The Perth Mint chose to start a bullion coin collection that was also considered legal tender.

    Each coin is .999 fine silver, in brilliant uncirculated condition, and is packaged in a clear, mint sealed capsule. Under 400,000 silver Koalas were minted in 2009, striking an interest among avid coin collectors. Many collectors enjoy the mint issued capsules that come with the coin. It offers security in the product and protection for the coin while in transit. Following their remarkable attention to detail and quality products, the Perth Mint does not disappoint the assertive coin collector in this series.

    Coin Highlights
    -.999 fine silver
    -BU condition
    -Sealed in airtight capsule
    -400,000 minted
    -Obverse: The obverse design is the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. She is delicately poised in a side pose, revealing her lovely silhouette on the coin. The attention to detail of the Queen depicts an extremely realistic and older Queen, as if to celebrate her age. She is accompanied by the words, "Australia," "2009," and the coin's denomination, "one dollar," inscribed on the outer edge of the coin.
    -Reverse: The reverse design reveals a suspicious, chubby koala, who is intensely clutching a tree branch to hold his balance. His face has friendly features but the interesting aspect of this coin is the background. There is a specific design in the background, possibly implying the koala is high up in the trees and the leaves are surrounding the hungry bear. "1 oz .999 silver" is lightly written under the gripping paws of the koala.
