More info

The first release in this stunning new series depicts the koala, perhaps Australia’s most beloved and iconic animal. Like many Australian mammals, this unique creature is nocturnal and can sleep for approximately 18 hours a day. This idea was the inspiration behind the design concept.

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

New and Innovative Coin Design.
The coin’s reverse incorporates an inner panel design of a koala in a gum tree, detailed in pure Australian opal. The outer panel of the coin depicts Eucalypt leaves and blossoms, a new moon and the Southern Cross – a renowned star group which is only visible in the Southern hemisphere.

Extremely Limited Mintage, no more than 8,000 of these coins will be issued by The Perth Mint.

Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year-date and the monetary denomination.

The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Presented in a prestigious display case, a light turns on as you open the case, highlighting the opal design and symbolising moonlight, shining down on the nocturnal koala.

This wonderfully crafted koala coin is the first release in the outstanding, new Australian opal series. Showcasing nocturnal Australian animals created in pure Australian opal, this unique concept is simply dazzling.

This stunning series will feature eight coins in total, with two releases per year.

Forthcoming Releases: The Wombat and the Kangaroo.
