Australian Koala coins debuted in 2007 at the Perth Mint. This followed the establishment of the Australian Kangaroo gold bullion coins in 1990 and the Australian Kookaburra silver bullion coins. Each of those has been available annually since introduction and the same is true of the now-popular Australian Koala coins.


The obverse face of the 2016 Proof Australian Koala 1/10 oz Gold Coins comes with an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The image depicted here is a right-profile portrait of Her Majesty that was designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England. The design featured on British coins from 1998 to 2015 and on Australian coins from 1999 to 2018/19. Her Majesty is showcased with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on her head.


On the reverse side of the 2016 Proof Australian Koala 1/10 oz Gold Coin, you will find the image of a koala. This beloved marsupial is often called the koala bear, even though it is not a bear species. Koalas spend as many as 20 hours sleeping each day and subsist on a diet of eucalyptus leaves. In this design, it climbs along the branch of a tree.


The Perth Mint has a long history of issuing bullion coins with images of native animal species. In addition to the kangaroo, koala, and kookaburra, the Perth Mint offers coins with designs such as the emu and wedge-tail eagle.


2016 Proof Australian Koala 1/10 oz Gold Coins come with a commemorative display box. This presentation case has a black velvet insert with a themed shipper that reads Australian Koala Gold Coin Series 2016. There is stylized artwork on the cover depicting the koala.
