2023 Australian Koala 1kg .9999 Silver Bullion Coin – 1 Kilo
Depicting one of Australia’s most beloved animals, the Australian koala silver coins pay tribute to our rich wildlife.
Each coin in this program is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
Struck from 99.99% pure silver, no mintage limit applies to the 1 kilo coin, however production will close at the end of 2023 and The Perth Mint will declare the coin’s official mintage.
Each coin portrays a koala on a gum tree branch with a joey clinging to its back. Both coin designs incorporate the inscription ‘KOALA’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, purity and year-date.
The obverse of each coin bears The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of her reign, 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 design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
