In 2007, the Perth Mint introduced a new silver bullion series to go along with its extremely popular Silver Kookaburra series.. The new series featured one of Australia’s most adorable and iconic animals, the Koala. Since then, the series has featured one-year only designs that have captured the hearts of collectors of all ages around the world. The 2020 1 oz coin has a mintage cap of 300,000 coins, well below the mintage of most other annual bullion coins, while the 1 kg coin will be mint-to-order.
Related issues, such as Gold Proof and High Relief Silver Proof Koalas, will also be available in 2020.
The coin’s obverse features a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. Clark shows the monarch wearing the headpiece that she traditionally wears to Britain’s State Opening of Parliament, her Royal Diamond Diadem. The monarch has her shoulders open to the holder and wears earrings and a necklace. The portrait is encircled by a rim frame in which there are three inscriptions. They include the monarch’s name, “ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA,” and the coin’s face value.
On the reverse, an adorable koala looks at the holder from the top of a tree limb. The holder has an excellent look at the animal’s face and its unique ears. Next to its head is the famous “P” mint mark of the Perth Mint, which is recognized by collectors around the world as a symbol of quality. A rim frame also encircles this image. At the top is the name of the coin, “AUSTRALIAN KOALA.” Inscriptions at the bottom note the coin’s date, “2020,” weight, and purity, “9999 SILVER.”
