Struck from 1oz of pure platinum, this limited investment opportunity celebrates the 35th anniversary of the Platinum Koala, issued annually by The Perth Mint between 1988 and 2000.
- 99.95% pure platinum
- Special anniversary 'P35' mintmark
- Features the Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse

- Authentication feature
On 18 June 1987, the Australian Government approved the minting of platinum coins by The Perth Mint. In September 1988, the Mint released the nation’s first Platinum Koala coin. This 35th anniversary issue celebrates that remarkable first release, replicating the original coin’s reverse design.
The coin portrays a koala as it appeared on the first Australian Koala coins in 1988. Included on the reverse is the inscription ‘THE AUSTRALIAN KOALA’, a commemorative ‘P35’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, purity, and 2023 year-date.
The coin bears the official Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of Her Majesty’s reign – ‘1952 – 2022’. Also included on the obverse is the coin’s monetary denomination.
For additional peace of mind, the coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.
The coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
