Australia Perth Mint 60 Dollars Australian Koala 2 Kilo Silver

The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is a warm-blooded marsupial that lives mainly on the eastern coast of Australia. Its size and color will vary depending on whether it is native to the southern or northern parts of Australia. This unique animal sleeps for up to 19 hours a day due to its low metabolic rate and can live for 20 or more years.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 2 kilos of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 200 of the Australian Koala 2018 2 Kilo Silver Antiqued High Relief Coin.

Design:

The reverse of the coin depicts an adult koala sleeping in a eucalyptus tree surrounded by gumnuts, gum leaves and gum blossoms. The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOALA 2018 2 KILO 9999 SILVER and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The obverse of the coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

The coins are individually edge numbered from 1 to 200.

TEHCNICAL NOTES

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.
