Our latest Australian Koala design portrays a koala relaxing in a eucalyptus tree, where the much-loved marsupials spend most of their lives. In the background is a finely observed depiction of gum leaves. These extraordinary 1oz and 2oz gold coins are a remarkable addition to the annual series, struck in high relief to enhance the depth and detail of the design. The Perth Mint’s proof quality high relief strike is renowned throughout the world for its superb clarity and the additional detail it portrays.
The coin's reverse design portrays a koala sitting astride branches in a flowering eucalyptus tree. The design includes the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN KOALA’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the weight and fineness, and the 2019 year-date.
Each coin is housed in a classic timber display case. Packaged with an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
