From Australia’s famous Perth Mint, this 1 kg silver bullion coin issued for 2019 is minted in 99.99% pure silver.
The Perth Mint is owned by the Government of the State of Western Australia. This Mint has a long and distinguished history and was originally established as a branch mint of Britain’s Royal Mint in 1899.
The reverse of this 1 kilogram Koala silver bullion coin features imagery of a cute Koala sitting on the branch of a eucalyptus tree, and the words ‘AUSTRALIAN KOALA’ encircled above, with the coin’s year 2019, weight 1 kilo, and silver purity 9999 imprinted below.
The obverse of the 1 kg coin displays a head portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, Australia’s monarch.
The imagery of the Koala on this series of Perth Mint silver coin changes each year and the coins have a limited mintage. This means that the silver Koala is a collectable coin and suitable for gift giving, as well as for investors buying silver bullion for savings purposes.
The Koala series of silver bullion coins from the Perth Mint are also produced in other sizes namely 10 oz, 1 oz and 1/2 oz coins.
