The silver Koalas are some of the most popular silver bullion coins. The 2017 Koala 1kg coins were minted at The Perth Mint in Australia. These are sold as an investment product.
The Koala was introduced in 2007 and instantly became a favourite with both coin collectors and investors. The Perth Mint in Australia are famous for producing high quality bullion products.
The one kilo coins are produced on a mint-to-order basis, meaning there is no limit on the amount produced. The Perth Mint will declare the mintage figure at the end of the year.
Ian Rank Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the coin's obverse. This has appeared on all Koala coins to date. The obverse bears the inscription:
