When you buy the 2 oz 2018 Australian Koala Next Generation Piedfort silver coin from our online store, you'll enjoy the web's lowest price! The acclaimed Perth Mint introduces the Next Generation series, which will feature 'mother and baby' depictions of some of Australia's most loved indigenous fauna.

The coin's reverse features an endearing and thoroughly realistic rendering of an Australian Koala mother carrying her cub on her back as she climbs higher up the Eucalyptus tree, in search of more delicious, fragrant leaves. The reverse is devoid of distracting inscriptions and the feature is instead brought into crisp 3D relief by a light catching, micro-engraved field of star burst radial lines.

The obverse features a classic, detailed effigy of Elizabeth II in profile, also set, to striking effect, on a star burst field of micro-engraved radial lines. All the necessary specifications can be found on the obverse, including Elizabeth II's name and the country of origin, as well as the year of issue, weight, purity, content and unique denominational value.

All of the 2 ounce coin's in this bespoke series will be of Piedfort design, meaning that they are to be struck with double thickness, making them even more unique and pleasing on the eye. Celebrate the treasure trove of the Australian animal kingdom with a treasure of your own and enliven your portfolio with a 2 oz 2018 Australian Koala Next Generation Piedfort silver coin today.


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.
