Depicting one of Australia’s most beloved animals, the Australian koala silver coins pay tribute to our rich wildlife.
Struck from 99.99% pure silver, the 2020 koala is available in 1 kilo and 1oz sizes.
Only 300,000 1oz coins will be released. No mintage limit applies to the 1 kilo coin, however production will close at the end of 2020 and The Perth Mint will declare the coin’s official mintage.
Each coin in this program is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The reverse of each coin portrays a koala holding onto a tree branch. The inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN KOALA’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2020 year-date, and the weight and purity are also included in the design.
The obverse of each coin bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the coin’s ‘AUSTRALIAN KOALA’ inscription. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.

ABOUT THE PERTH MINT
Established on 20 June 1899, two years before Australia’s Federation in 1901, The Perth Mint was the last of three Australian colonial branches of the United Kingdom ‘s Royal Mint (after the now-defunct Sydney Mint and Melbourne Mint) intended to refine gold from the gold rushes and to mint gold sovereigns and half-sovereigns for the British Empire. Swan Bullion Company is proud to be an authorised distributor for The Perth Mint’s bullion and numismatic products.
