Why purchase this 5 oz. 2017 Australian Silver Koala Proof?

The Perth Mint's Koala series has been a favorite among numismatic collectors since it was first introduced in 2007. Featuring one of the most cherished marsupial species of Australia, reverse imagery of the coin changes on a yearly basis, offering great appeal to collectors. This 2017 Australian Koala is struck from 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver to a stunning high relief proof finish, measuring 50.6mm in diameter, with a mintage limited to just 1,000 coins.

Spectacular Koala imagery by Perth Mint designer Thomas Vaughan

A single koala is rendered in incredible high relief detail on the reverse, sitting in a shaded grassy area beneath a eucalyptus tree. Inscriptions include "AUSTRALIAN KOALA" and "2017 5oz 999 SILVER," with the Perth Mint "P" and the artist's initials "TV" in the left field.

The legend "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "8 DOLLARS" surrounds the high relief obverse portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, created by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.

Magnificent GEM Proof in original Government packaging

This 2017 $8 Australia 5 oz. High Relief Silver Koala coin is in beautiful GEM Proof condition, its surface and strike quality equivalent to a proof receiving a grade of 65 or higher on the Sheldon Scale.
