The Perth Mint is pleased to present the iconic Australian Koala Gold Proof Coin Series, featuring one of Australia’s most loved marsupials.
Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Gold
Struck from 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, the series comprises a 2oz high relief coin, a 1oz high relief coin, and a 1/4oz coin.
Original 2015 Koala Design
The reverse of each Australian legal tender coin 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.
Spectacular High Relief
The 2oz and 1oz coins are available in spectacular high relief. Each coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
Australian Legal Tender
Each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on the obverse.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 50 2oz high relief coins and 350 1oz high relief coins, in this style of individual packaging.
Beautiful Packaging and Numbered Certificates
Individually housed in a prestigious display case and custom designed shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
