Silver Koala, Australian legal tender, is the newest
coin addition by the Perth Mint. This coin was
introduced due to its attraction in design and
popularity among coin collectors. The quality and
reliability of this fine coin are also well-known. The
Koala coin is made from .999 fine silver.
Its appeal and
desirability, no doubt, can be attributed to the
ever-adorable Koala bear, which is the symbolic
marsupial of Australia. An image of which can be found
on the back of the coin. This image is different from
year to year as each mintage is announced. It is clear
that both collectors and investors share the taste for
such a fine silver coin because of its high quality and
the lovable Koala that it displays.

drink". Learn more about Koala at
