Purchase your 1 oz 2018 Australian Koala silver coin from our store today and enjoy the lowest price online. The renowned Perth Mint introduced their popular Australian Koala coin series in 2007 to celebrate a species that’s become synonymous with the land down under: that precious marsupial…the Koala.

The reverse feature, which changes with each year’s release, depicts a busy Koala soaking up his natural habitat, a eucalyptus tree and a field of delicious gum leaves. The series title, ‘Australian Koala,’ as well as the coin’s weight, purity and year of release are also inscribed on the reverse and all is beautifully encapsulated in a simple double frame.

The obverse feature is none other than Elizabeth II, meticulously engraved by the hands of Ian Rank-Broadley, down to each hair of her head and jewel of her royal crown. The coin’s obverse also bears the queen’s informal title, the coin’s origin and denominational value.

Not only is this year’s silver edition the first in the series to boast .9999 purity, it’s also been released under limited mintage, making the 1 oz 2018 Australian Koala silver coin a sought after collectible. What better way to appreciate Australia than with this tribute to its uniquely rich, indigenous wildlife; ready and set to enrich your portfolio now.


The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint's 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
