The koala is one of Australia’s favorite marsupials and is a quintessential icon of the land down under. The Perth Mint introduced the Koala series in 2007, and it has been a perennial hit with collectors and investors ever since. Now, the Mint is introducing its first ever 10 oz silver bullion piedfort coin featuring a mother and baby koala.
This .9999 fine silver coin, while only 65 mm in diameter, is crafted with an extra thick planchet in the style of traditional ‘piedforts’ (pronounced pee-ay-fore). Piedfort coins can be traced back to twelfth-century France, where their name was derived from the french words for “heavy weight”. The 10 oz Silver Piedfort Koala is the perfect way to accumulate a larger amount of silver in one purchase with a distinctive and collectible design. Add this coin to your collection today!
The obverse depicts the new Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Engravings include ELIZABETH II, 2018, AUSTRALIA, 10 OZ 9999 AG, and 10 DOLLARS.
The reverse features a mother koala perched on a eucalyptus branch carrying her joey on her back. Radial lines and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also included in the design as added security features.
