When you purchase one of these 2012 Australian Koala High Relief 1 oz Gold Coins from Provident Metals, you will receive a coin that is in perfect condition. The PCGS issues a grade of PR70 to coins that showcase full, original mint luster and have no minor detracting flaws present on the coin. The DCAM designation stands for deep-cameo and refers to the strong, frosted designs overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear fields.


The obverse of 2012 Australian Koala 1 oz Gold Coins comes with an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This effigy of Her Majesty was developed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England and debuted one year later on Australian coins. The effigy of the Queen comes with inscriptions of Elizabeth II, Australia, 2012, and 100 Dollars.


On the reverse face of 2012 Australian Koala High Relief 1 oz Gold Coins, you will find the image of a koala that is unique to the 2012 release. This image captures the lazy koala doing what it does best, napping. The koala is a marsupial that is known to sleep for as many as 20 hours a day. The inscriptions on this face read 1 oz 9999 Gold.


The 2012 Australian Koala High Relief Gold Coin in 1 oz gold was set for a maximum mintage of 2,000 gold coins. However, the Perth Mint announced a final mintage of just 659 gold coins. A high-relief strike, these gold coins have deeper visual fields and higher relief on the design strike.
