The Perth Mint’s Silver Koala silver coin series first came on the scene in 2007. In the intervening 11 years, it has become a popular mainstay in the stacking community and for collectors of wildlife-themed and Perth Mint issues. Each shining silver coin features a timeless image of Australia’s favorite marsupial, the Koala. The series is struck on .9999 fine silver rounds. While the 1 oz. issue has a limited mintage, the Kilo-sized issue is minted to demand.
The Perth Mint is one of the leading issuers and innovators in the production of popular bullion products, numismatic issues and circulating coins. Their issues are collected and admired all over the world.

The series celebrates the Koala with a fresh reverse image every year. The series is struck in .9999 silver with the Australian Government guaranteeing the purity and content. The coins are legal tender Australian coinage under Australia’s Currency Act of 1965. The coins are available individually in Mint fresh, Brilliant Uncirculated condition. They are fully detailed, lustrous examples shipped in an acrylic Mint capsule for protection. The Perth Mint’s Australian Silver Koala series has had an established collector base since it was introduced in 2007. These beautiful Perth Mint Silver Koala coins experience the same kind of enthusiasm and demand as the 2018 Silver Kookaburras and Kangaroos have.
The annual change of the reverse design keeps collectors and Koala aficionados coming back year after year. This year’s image features the iconic tree-climbing marsupial perched on a eucalyptus branch in Australia’s rugged Outback. Over the image appears the legend “Australian Koala.” Beneath the image appears “2018” the weight and “.9999 silver.” In the upper left, near the face of the adorable Koala, the classic Perth Mint “P” Mint mark appears.
The obverse is graced by the Ian Rank-Broadly designed image of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Inscriptions include “Elizabeth II,” “Australia” and the denomination.
