Beware: cuteness ahead! The 2014 5 oz Silver Koala Road Sign from Australia’s Perth Mint is a cheeky nod to one of Australia’s most famous creatures.
This hefty coin is composed of five ounces of .999 pure silver with a frosted finish.
The reverse shows a koala carrying a joey on its back while climbing a tree branch. The marsupials stand out against the frosted diamond finish of the road sign. The background is finished with a hexagonal shape, along with stars from the Australian flag. One side of the four-sided sign reads 1 oz .999 Ag.
The obverse includes a stunning portrait of Queen Elizabeth wearing the royal crown. The words ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA 2014, and 1 DOLLAR are written vertically and horizontally around the rim of this unique design.
Tourist shops in Australia frequently sell “koala crossing” signs and they make fantastic souvenirs from the Land Down Under. Yet you’d be hard-pressed to see an actual koala crossing the road, because they spend up to 20 hours a day asleep. When they are awake, they spend most of the day in one tree, as they are slow-moving and poor runners. If you want to see a koala, the best way is with a bit of silver!
This is the second coin in the Road Sign series and only 5,000 of the 5 oz silver coins will be minted.
Coins are delivered in a black clamshell with a decorative Australian Road Sign series box. Order yours from Provident Metals today!
