Australia Koala government issued silver bullion coins

Australia Koala

The Silver Koala is a silver coin from Australia produced at the Perth Mint. While the obverse of the coin always depicts Queen Elizabeth II, the reverse side changes each year, featuring a koala in different native habitats. As with other Perth Mint issues, silver koalas have larger following than some other bullion coins due to the yearly design change, quality of the coin, and limited production. The coins are minted yearly in up to five different sizes.

The series began in 2007 with only the one-ounce bullion coin being minted. All other sizes were minted in 2008 except for the ​1⁄10 Oz, which began to be issued in 2011. As of 2020, bullion coins are currently released in 1kg and 1oz sizes and the numismatic coinage is minted in 5 Oz and 1 Oz sizes, with other sizes released occasionally. The coins were .999 fine silver until the 2018 edition, which increased in purity to .9999 silver. Perth Mint originally had no caps on the amount of one-ounce coins produced, but since 2018, the mintage has been capped to 300,000.
