2018 1 oz Australian Silver Koala Coin
One of the most famous coins from the Perth Mint of Australia is the Australian Silver Koala. This annual-release silver bullion coin is well known for the use of a new reverse design each year that includes a depiction of one of the nation’s most famous marsupial species. The sleepy koala is found on the reverse of all coins in this collection. Today, the 2018 1 oz Australian Silver Koala Coin is available to you online from EJP Bullion.
The 2018 release of the Silver Koala coin marks the 12th annual issue of these coins, but the first time in the program’s history that .9999 pure silver content has been used. Following the 2016 inaugural issue of the Australian Silver Kangaroo with .9999 pure silver, the Perth Mint has been upgrading its Silver Kookaburra and Silver Koala coins to follow suit.
Each 2018 1 oz Australian Silver Koala coin available to you today is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, but minor flaws from the production process are possible on the surfaces. These small flaws range from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks.
2018 Silver Koala coins are a great investment with proven reliability in coining, design, and quality from the Perth Mint. The coins are available to you as an individual purchase inside of protective capsules, or in bulk purchases. Multiples of 20 coins are shipped inside of sealed rolls by the mint, with multiples of 100 available in boxes of five rolls.
The reverse of the 2018 1 oz Australian Silver Koala coin includes the image of a koala as it sits on a tree branch. The sleep marsupials spend most of their day eating or sleeping, catching upwards of 18 to 20 hours of sleep per day.
On the obverse of the Australian Silver Koala is Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy. The Perth Mint continues the use of the Ian Rank-Broadley design that represents the fourth-generation effigy of Her Majesty. It was originally created in 1998 for British coinage.
