The Australian Koala is one of the Perth Mints most visible bullion programs. Introduced in 2007 as a silver bullion series, the program expanded one year later in 2008 to feature gold bullion coins as well. The gold series is largely a proof offering from the mint, while silver coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof versions each year. Right now, you can buy Australian Koala 1/4 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.
With your purchase of Australian Koala 1/4 oz Gold Coins, you receive each coin inside of an individual protective plastic flip. These coins are available courtesy of Provident Metals from random years. All coins are chosen at random once your payment has been processed and we are not able to guarantee the date mark and design on the coin you receive.
Please note that the Australian Koala Gold Series uses new designs of the koala on the reverse field each year. This means the coins available in this listing can have a wide variety of reverse design elements. It is also possible to find one of two different effigies of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. If you buy more than one coin, please note you could receive several coins with the same date marks and designs.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of Australian Koala 1/4 oz Gold Coins. The vast majority of coins currently available in this program have the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the Queen created in 1998. This right-profile bust depicts the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Any coins issued as of 2018 have the Jody Clark effigy created in 2015. This right-profile bust captures the Queen at the age of 89 with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head.
As with other collections, the Perth Mint uses varying images of the koala on the reverse of Australian Koala 1/4 oz Gold Coins. The koala designs on the reverse have never repeated in this series, with the designs typically featuring either a single koala or a parent and young koala.
Australian Koala silver coins were the second major bullion program from the Perth Mint when introduced in 2007. It followed the 1990 release of the Australian Kookaburra. The 2008 introduction of Australian Koala Gold Coins joined the Australian Kangaroo Gold Bullion series as one of the major gold options from the mint.
