The Perth Mint has released this spectacular 2 kilo silver coin, featuring the Australian koala.
The koala is a warm-blooded marsupial that lives mainly on the eastern coast of Australia. Its size and colour will vary depending on whether it is native to the southern or northern parts of Australia.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 2 kilos of 99.99% pure silver.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 200 of the Australian Koala 2018 2 Kilo Silver Antiqued High Relief Coin.
The reverse of the coin depicts an adult koala sleeping in a eucalyptus tree surrounded by gumnuts, gum leaves and gum blossoms.
The coins are individually edge numbered from 1 to 200.
The coin is housed in a stunning clear case, which makes a perfect display piece.
The case sits within a wooden presentation box and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
The coin has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment the appearance of each coin may vary.
