2 oz. - 2018 Australian Silver Koala

Be the first to review this product

WIth a limited mintage of only 75,000 coins, the first-ever two ounce Aussie Silver Koala piedfort coin is one of the most exciting releases from the Perth Mint in many years. Piedfort comes from the French word “pied-fort”, which translates to heavy weight. It is used to describe a specially issued coin which is thicker and heavier than the usual specifications.

Struck in 99.99% pure silver, we expect this series to sell-out quickly. The coins are double-thick with a great design featuring a mother and baby koala perched on a branch with radial lines in the background.

The coins are packaged at the Perth Mint ten to a tube and in cases of ten tubes, 100 coins in all, totaling 200 ounces of pure silver. All orders of one hundred coins will come in sealed mint cases. We highly recommend acquiring these when they first are released to ensure the best pricing.

Austin Rare Coins & Bullion BBB Business Review





When early European settlers first encountered koalas in Australia, they thought the tree-climbing animals were monkeys or bears. Even though they're still referred to by some as "koala bears", they're actually marsupials like kangaroos and wombats.

The reverse of the coin depicts a koala clinging to the branch of a eucalyptus tree with her baby on her back. Also included is the year, weight, and the traditional Perth Mint "P" mintmark.

The obverse portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
