Australian Silver Koala coins were first introduced in 2007, and it didnt take long for one of the continents most beloved creatures to catch the eye of precious metal investors and collectors. Available weights for the Australian Silver Koala include 1/10 oz, oz, 1 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz, and a stunning 1 Kilogram coin.
Although often referred to as koala bears, the koala is actually a marsupial native to the continent of Australia. The koala is a nocturnal creature known to sleep for as many as 20 hours in a day, and although they have a cuddly reputation, the animals can actually pose quite a danger to humans when threatened.
On the reverse side of the 2011 1 oz Australian Silver Koala coin is the unique design feature used only in 2011. It features an adult koala and a young koala resting in the crook of a tree. The words Australian Koala are engraved above the image, while the coins year of minting, weight, purity, and metal content are featured below.
The obverse side bears the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II commonly found on Perth Mint products. Her Majestys effigy is accompanied by engravings of Elizabeth II, Australia, and the face value of the coin.
Each of these coins is available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Coins with a BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, but may feature milky spots, breaks in the luster, or other contact marks as a result of the coining process.
