The Koala coin series was initially released by the Perth Mint in 1987 in platinum. In 2007 the series was also launched in silver, and the platinum version of the coin was subsequently discontinued.These coins are made of 999+ or 9999+ silver bullion, depending on their year of minting.
Design of the Koala Series
One unique feature of the silver Koala coin is that the design of the coin is updated annually to feature a new image of a Koaal each year. This has made the coins popular with both collectors and investors alike. The silver Koala coin series is available from SuisseGold.ch in both 1 Ounce and 1 Kilogram sizes, and in current and backyear versions.
These coins all feature an image of Queen Elizabeth II on the front, who is head of the commonwealth. Each coin has a legal tender value, depending on its size. This value is significantly lower than the coin's silver content value, however, it indicates to investors that these coins are backed by the government of Australia, and that their quality is guaranteed.
