The Perth Mint is pleased to present the stunning 2015 5oz Australian Koala Gold Proof Coin, featuring one of Australia’s most loved marsupials.
The koala is a warm-blooded marsupial that lives mainly on the eastern coast of Australia. Dependent on whether it is found in the southern parts of eastern Australia or in the northern parts, its size and colour will vary. This unique animal sleeps for up to 19 hours a day due to its low metabolic rate, and can live for 20 or more years.
Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Gold
Each coin is struck from 5oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality.
2015 Australian Koala Design
The coin’s reverse depicts an adult koala sitting in the fork of a eucalyptus tree, amid a rural landscape. The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOALA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the 2015 year-date.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the coin’s obverse.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 99 of the Australian Koala 2015 5oz Gold Proof Coin.
Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate
The coin is housed in a prestigious wooden display case, within an illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
