Cuddly koala

With its much-loved call and striking blue, white and brown plumage, the kookaburra is an Australian icon. These kingfishers often make their ‘laughing’ call at dawn and dusk while perched on tree branches, rooftops or fences to establish territory among family groups. Celebrating the ‘king of the Australian bush’, this impressive 5oz silver coin is enhanced by a high relief strike. 

High relief design

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.
