Often perceived as a cuddly animal and generally sleepy during the daytime, the koala has an appealing bear-like face and thick grey fur. Spending much of its life in gum trees where it consumes large quantities of leaves, the koala can nevertheless be experienced close-up at sanctuaries and zoos throughout Australia.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 3oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,000 of the Australian Koala – 15th Anniversary 2022 3oz Silver Gilded Coin.
