The obverse of the 2 oz Koala features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. The words “ELIZABETH II” and “AUSTRALIA” are inscribed around the rim, along with the coin’s weight, purity, denomination, and year of issue.
The Next Generation Koala’s reverse features a mother koala atop a tree branch with her baby on her back. At birth, baby koalas measure less than 2 cm. They are blind and deaf, but their strong forelimbs help them climb into their mother’s pouch after birth. The mint’s “P” mintmark is seen on this side, along with radial lines.
In Spring 2018, the Perth Mint of Australia took the bullion world by storm with an all-new series: The Next Generation. All of the coins in this product line feature both a mother and baby of various iconic Australian animals. The series kicked off with a striking two-ounce silver piedfort featuring two koala bears.
Provident Metals is excited to make this new Perth Mint release available in flawless condition. The coins being offered are certified as MS70 by NGC. Not only are these coins in the perfect grade, but they’ve also received the important First Day of Issue designation. That is, NGC has certified that these coins were among the very first to be released by the Perth Mint.
Since these coins are piedforts, they’re encapsulated in extra-thick NGC holders. Plus, the NGC has paired these coins with a highly attractive label displaying the Australian flag and the iconic Ayers rock. The label is more than just decorative; it also confirms the coin’s unique NGC serial number, grade, and official First Day of Issue status.
Each 2018 2 oz NGC MS70 Silver Koala is delivered in its sonically-sealed NGC slab.
Reserve your NGC-graded Next Generation Koala by placing your order online or calling a Provident representative at 800-313-3315.
