Australian Koala Gold Coins
The first annual gold proof Koala coins from Australia were minted in 2008. They were produced in limited numbers, no more than 5,000 1/10oz coins and 15,000 1/25oz coins. Each coin came with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and a presentation case with a jarrah timber lid. The 1/10oz coins have a face value of $15 AUD and the 1/25oz have a face value of $5AUD, both coins are made from .9999 fine gold. The reverse of the 2008 Koalas shows a mother and baby koala sitting on a tree branch.
In 2009, the coins were produced in the same limited numbers, the only difference being that the 2009 coins show a koala sitting on a tree branch eating gum leaves on the reverse. The 2010 coins show a different version of the koala eating gum leaves on a tree branch.
The Australian Gold Koala coins are available from the Perth Mint.
