The Perth Mint has a reputation for producing some of the best collections of silver coins in the world. The Australian Silver Koala series is one of the most beloved and highly collectible series of silver coins. Each year, the Perth Mint releases a new design in the series. Your 2018 Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coin is the 12th year of issue for the Australian Silver Koala. It is the first time that the silver koala coin has been featured with .9999 pure silver. The coin has a $1 face value that is fully backed by the Australian government.
The Australian Silver Koala series was the second major silver bullion coin series offered by Perth Mint. The collection of coins debuted in 1990 with the Australian Silver Kookaburra. This beautiful coin set the stage for new designs released each year on the reverse face.
In the years that have past, the Perth Mint has added several other series to their portfolio. The Australian Silver Koala and the Australian Silver Kangaroo are just two of the others that have proven incredibly popular.
The obverse design of the 2018 Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coin features the 1998 portrait that was imagined by famed sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief. This is the fourth-generation design of Her Majesty, which means that it is the fourth image to have been featured on coinage in the commonwealth.
The reverse design of the 2018 Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coin features the 2018 design of the beloved marsupial. The koala is shown sitting on the branch of a eucalyptus tree. While the koala is often referred to as a koala bear, it isn’t related to bears at all. These marsupials are more closely related to the wallaby and the kangaroo.
Your 2018 Australian Koala 1 oz Silver Coin has been certified by the NGC as having a Mint State 70. Specimens with this MS70 certification have their full and original mint luster and lack any detracting flaws. There is no more perfect grade for collectible coins.
