AUSTRALIAN KOALA SILVER COIN SERIES 2011 5OZ SILVER PROOF COIN Just 300!





WOW Just 300! AUSTRALIAN KOALA SILVER COIN SERIES 2011 5OZ SILVER PROOF COIN

This is the first time that an Australian Koala coin has been offered in this size.

The koala is an internationally recognised symbol of Australia. An arboreal marsupial, it spends most of its time in trees. Inactive during the day, it feeds on the foliage of the eucalypt at night. The koala is one of the few mammals, other than primates, that has fingerprints very similar to those of humans.

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 5oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Original 2011 Koala Design The reverse design depicts a charming image of an adult koala and juvenile resting in the fork of a eucalyptus tree and incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2011 year-date.

Limited Mintage No more than 5,000 of the 5oz Silver Koala coins will be released, with only 300 available in Australia.

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Presentation Packaging The coin is housed in a presentation case and customised shipper featuring a coloured illustration of two koalas.
