PROOF QUALITY 99.9% PURE SILVER

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from an impressive 5oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

SPECTACULAR HIGH RELIEF DESIGN

Depicting an adult koala sitting on a branch of a eucalyptus tree surrounded by gum leaves, the coin’s reverse also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOALA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the 2013 year-date.

Both sides of the coin are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
