General Coin Information

The 2011 Australian Koala Silver Bullion Coin marks the fifth year in the series of silver koala strikes from the Perth Mint of Australia.

These strikes are available in four different sizes including a $30 AUS face value one kilo coin, a $10 face value 10 ounce coin, a $1 face value ounce coin and a $.50 face value 1/2 ounce coin. The diameters of these strikes stand at 100.60 mm, 75.60mm, 40.60mm and 36.60 mm, respectively.

Beginning in 2011, the Perth added a fifth size to the series - a 1/10 ounce, ten cent strike.

The Perth Mint started the Koala Silver Coins in 2007 and has been issuing them annually ever since. Collectors continue to favor the strikes as the Perth changes the reverse designs annually including a new depiction of Australia's famous marsupial.

The One Ounce specimen quality coin may be purchased online from the following Perth Mint page:

Obverse Design

As legal tender of Australia under the Currency Act of 1965, the obverse of each Koala Silver Coin contains a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. Also shown are the inscriptions of "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and the face value of each strike.

Reverse Design

The 2011 Koala Silver Coin contains a design showcasing two of the creatures - an adult and its young. The adult is shown sitting in the fork of a Eucalyptus Tree as its offspring clings to one of the branches. The inscriptions of "AUSTRALIAN KOALA," 2011," "999 SILVER" and the weight of each strike are shown on the reverse as well.
