1oz SILVER COIN 2023 KOALA - PERTH MINT
Depicting one of Australia’s most beloved animals, the Australian koala silver coins pay tribute to our rich wildlife. Struck from 99.99% pure silver, the 2023 koala is available in 1 kilo and 1oz sizes. Each coin portrays a koala on a gum tree branch with a joey clinging to its back. Both coin designs incorporate the inscription ‘KOALA’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, purity and year-date.
The obverse of each coin bears The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of her reign, and the monetary denomination.
Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the coin’s design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass. Each bullion coin is presented ina protective acrylic capsule.
Perth Mint coins come encased in a hard clear acrylic case to help keep coins in pristine condition. Ainslie Bullion recommends leaving these cases un-tampered for the best preservation of value.

Coins are a popular choice of bullion given their legal tender status (Government backing of the coin and its metal content), often smaller in size (making for easier disposal in the event of large price increases), international recognition (no fuss tradability overseas) and portability. Another common advantage is mintage limits on many government minted coins meaning a “collectible” premium can often be realised. Caution should be exercised in buying coins over bars for your Super as they can be classified as a collectible and need special storage. Refer to the ATO or your advisor for more information. Coins can make for the perfect gift as you can match the year or Lunar Year to the recipient to celebrate an event.
