Story

Much-loved marsupial

The Australian Koala is a sought-after coin series featuring annual designs of the much-loved marsupial. Sleepy and docile, koalas spend most of their time either resting or eating gum leaves among Australia’s eucalyptus forests.

Dozing animal design

The high relief coin’s appealing artistry portrays the iconic native animal dozing on the bough of a tree amid clusters of eucalyptus leaves. With meticulous care and attention, the koala and the coin’s rim have been gilded in gorgeous 22-carat pink gold. Also on the reverse are the inscriptions ‘KOALA’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, as well as the coin’s weight, purity and year-date.
