There was a point in the history of coinage when mints would use privy marks simply to denote the specific mint facility responsible for striking a coin. Today, privy marks are used primarily to add numismatic value to limited-mintage coins.
2017 1 oz Kangaroo Privy Australian Silver Koala coins from the Perth Mint are a one-time offering. The coins were produced with just 50,000 coins in total, so there are only a handful of certified coins available to purchase.
All 2017 Kangaroo Privy Australian Silver Koala coins in this listing are perfect specimens as certified by the NGC. These coins are available in Mint State 70 condition, which indicates the presence of full, original mint luster and a complete lack of detracting flaws on the surface areas.
A coin with an Early Release designation is one that arrived within a certain window of time for grading. These coins must arrive at the NGC or an approved third-party facility for grading within the first 30 days of the release date set by the Perth Mint.
The obverse of all Silver Koala coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy has appeared on all commonwealth coinage since she ascended to the throne in 1952. This is the fourth-generation depiction created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Kangaroo Privy Australian Silver Koala coin you’ll find the latest design of the koala on the silver coins in this collection. This is the 11th new design, featuring a koala resting at the base of a tree. There is a small kangaroo privy mark on the reverse side in the upper-left area.
Perth Mint is the oldest operating facility in Australia, and originally opened in 1899 as the third and final mint in the Royal Mint facility. Today, it is owned by the government in the state of Western Australia.
