We are pleased to present this stunning 1oz gold proof high relief coin, featuring one of Australia’s most loved marsupials.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 500 of the Australian Koala 2018 1oz Gold Proof High Relief Coin.
The coin’s reverse features a koala astride two branches in a flowering eucalyptus tree. The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOALA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the 2018 year-date.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
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 is presented in a prestigious timber display case within an illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Since 1998, Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth effigy of HRH Queen Elizabeth has served with distinction as the obverse for coins of the UK and the Commonwealth (View Designer’s Profile).
