Australia’s Perth Mint has released the 2013 Ounce Australian Silver Koala, one of the most popular coins in the Outback’s bullion series. With its weight and purity backed by the government of Australia, this 2013 Koala is composed of a half ounce of .999 pure silver–an affordable way to add precious metals to your portfolio.
The reverse of each Oz Silver Koala features the full-grown marsupial, perched in the fork of a leafy tree. Inscriptions include the words AUSTRALIAN KOALA, 2013, 999 SILVER and the Perth Mint mark P, along with the coin’s size.
The obverse of each Ounce Australian Koala bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by famed British sculptor, Ian Rank-Broadley. Inscriptions include the words ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA and the face value of 50 cents.
Considered legal tender under Australia’s Currency Act of 1965, Silver Koalas were first introduced in 2007 and, thanks to annually-changing designs, have grown to be one of the most highly acclaimed coins issued by the mint.
The Perth Mint was established in 1899 after gold was discovered in local deposits. The mint struck gold and silver sovereigns until Great Britain abandoned the gold standard in 1931. It remained under British control until 1970, when it ceded to the State Government of Western Australia.
