Beginning in 2007, the Perth Mint introduced the Silver Koala series in both Gold and Silver. Each year features a different design of this animal that is so strongly associated with Australia.

Australian Silver Koala coins are produced in both 1 oz and 1 kilogram size, with the mintage of the 1 oz size capped at just 300,000 coins. This makes the Australian Silver Koala one of the most collectible bullion series. The Koala, along with the Kookaburra, Lunar Series, and Kangaroo form what has continued to be a robust line of high quality bullion products from the Perth Mint of Australia.

When early European settlers first encountered koalas in Australia, they thought the tree-climbing animals were monkeys or bears. Even though they're still referred to by some as "koala bears", they're actually marsupials like kangaroos and wombats.

Koalas have special physical characteristics that complement their tree-dwelling lifestyle. They're able to grip branches and pick eucalyptus leaves with their two opposable digits, and their tough skin and sharp claws provide traction in climbing. They even have extra thick fur on their seat so they can sit comfortably on branches for hours! Unique to Australia, these animals are a perfect theme for an iconic coin series.

I recently purchased just one silver koala coin. I liked it so much I ordered 5 more! The coins arrived in exceptional Brilliant Uncirculated Condition. Like the Australian Kangaroo and the Chinese Panda, the design changes each year to something new. Very pleased with my purchase and will continue to buy from APMEX!

good long term investment

By  Mick Jagger

Precious metals are a tangible asset to my retirement and savings plan. Unlike an IRA, gold and silver are the true currency from the beginning of recorded human history. I invest in some gold and silver coins as well as bars basically for the spot value.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
