The history of the Platinum Koala coin
In 1987, the Perth Mint gained approval from the Australian government to mint Australian Platinum coins and Silver coins. The following year the Platinum Koala coin was introduced to the public, and it soon became one of the most popular Platinum coins for investment worldwide. The Australian coins continued to be produced until 2000, and in 2013 the Perth Mint issued a 25th Anniversary Australian Koala to commemorate the first release.

Why invest in Platinum Koala coins?
Many buy Platinum Koala coins to diversify their traditional investment portfolio with Precious Metals. The sovereign Australian coins contain 1 troy oz of .9995 fine Platinum, and meet the Internal Revenue Service’s minimum fineness requirements for Precious Metals IRAs. How many Australian Platinum coins you should buy to strategically balance your portfolio depends on your goals and preferences, so many choose to consult with a financial advisor before buying Platinum. In general, many financial planners suggest allocating 5 to 10 percent of your portfolio to Precious Metals like Platinum.
Should I buy Platinum Koala coins or Gold coins?
Many find adding Platinum Koala coins to investment portfolios just as advantageous as adding Gold coins, and sometimes the benefits of Platinum outweigh the benefits of Gold. The Platinum price per ounce is historically higher than the Gold price per ounce, and that is mainly because of supply and demand. Platinum, as found in Australian Platinum coins, is used extensively in industrial products for everyday use, and when there is high industrial demand, the Platinum price rises. When industrial demand weakens, Gold tends to garner a higher price per troy ounce because Platinum is used more in industry than Gold, and Gold is typically perceived as more valuable purely for its thousands of years of use as currency.
Create Platinum Koala coins from every year the Platinum bullion coins were minted.
Though many view Platinum Koala coins as investment bullion, the Australian coins also have numismatic or collector value due to their limited mintage and design. The reverse of the Australian Platinum coins featured a koala bear, and the design was changed annually. Since the Australian coins have not been minted regularly since 2010, finding specific years of the Platinum coin presents the kind of challenge that many collectors enjoy. Buy these random year Platinum coins, and you just may get the year you are looking for.
