There are few symbols of Australia more important and historic than the koala. These marsupials have been known to Aboriginals for thousands of years and were also one of the first native species on the Australian continent encountered by Europeans as they began to explore the South Pacific. Today, you have the chance to get 2022 Proof Niue Koala and Joey 1 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
Koalas have been a part of Aboriginal mythology and cave art for thousands of years. Europeans wouldnt encounter and catalog the koala until 1798. Over the next century, several European scientists and biologists introduced the koala to the wider world through written texts and images in published works in Europe and beyond.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of 2022 Proof Niue Koala and Joey Silver Coins. This design comes from Ian Rank-Broadley and was created in 1998 for the Royal Mint to serve as the fourth-generation effigy of Her Majesty. The image shows the Queen in right-profile relief with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Inscriptions on this side include ELIZABETH II, NIUE 2022, ONE DOLLAR, and 1 OZ 999 SILVER.
An adult koala is depicted in the reverse design of the 2022 Proof Koala and Joey 1 oz Silver Coin with its young Joey. The design shows the two creatures in the midst of a lush eucalyptus tree. As the leaves and branches cascade around it, the design shows the adult koala climbing the trunk of a tree as its young Joey holds on. The design field features an inscription of KOALA.
The koala has been a popular figure on Australian coins for decades. Bullion collections from the New Zealand Mint, Perth Mint, and Royal Australian Mint, to mention a few, offer Australian-themed designs with koalas on the reverse of the coins.
These 2022 Proof Niue Koala and Joey 1 oz Silver Coins are available with plastic capsules. Each specimen is housed in a presentation case with a themed shipper and a Certificate of Authenticity.
