The Australian Koala Silver Coins are some of the most popular and beautiful coins created by the Perth Mint each year. The koala is one of many animals native to Australia that are featured on coins each year, including the kangaroo and kookaburra. Right now, you can purchase the 2016 Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coin from Provident Metals in perfect MS70 condition.


  • Ship in protective plastic slabs from the NGC!
  • 10th release of the Australian Silver Koala Coin!
  • Each coin contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Given a face value of $1 (AUD) backed by the government of Australia.
  • Received an MS70 grade from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
  • Designated an Early Release specimen.
  • Obverse bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse features the new 2016 koala design.

Each of the coins in this listing was sent from the Perth Mint to the NGC within 30 days of their initial release. This is how they received the Early Release designation. In addition to the Early Release label, each coin was given a perfect Mint State 70 grade. Coins in this condition have their full, original mint luster. They can have no detracting flaws of any kind on the surface.


On the obverse of each 2016 Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coin NGC MS70 ER, you will see the brilliant image of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief. The design used on this coin was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. However, there is a newer image of the Queen that was released in 2015 that now appears on all commonwealth and British coins that was created by Jody Clark, so it is unclear why the older image is still being used on these coins.


The reverse image of the 2016 Koala Silver Coin shows a koala climbing along a tree branch. Also included on this side of the coin are the engravings Australian Koala and 1 oz. 999 Fine Silver.


The Perth Mint first introduced the Koala Series in 2007. Immediately, collectors and investors flocked to purchase the coins. Much like the Australian Kookaburra Coins, the Koala Series features a new design on the reverse each year.
