New from the Perth Mint is the High Relief, Antique finish Koala in 2 oz of Silver. Koalas in the southern parts of Australia are considerably larger and have thicker fur than those in the north.
This is thought to be an adaptation to keep them warm in the colder southern winters. This coin has been individually "antiqued" to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artifact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin may vary.
- Contains 2 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
- Each coin is presented in a classic gray display case, within a stylized shipper, and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
- Obverse: Features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date, and the monetary denomination.
- Reverse: Depicts an adult koala sleeping in a eucalyptus tree surrounded by gumnuts, gum leaves and gum blossoms. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s "P" mintmark.
