2018 Australia $1 High Relief Koala 1oz. Silver Proof (No Tax)

Exemplifying the art of high relief minting, this coin provides Australian koala collectors with a superb opportunity to appreciate the intricacies of the 2018 design with stunning clarity.

The coin is struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver with a proof quality finish comprising elegantly frosted design elements on a shiny, mirror-like table.

The coin's reverse features an artistic impression of a koala in its customary habitat — the canopy of a eucalyptus tree. Recognised throughout the world as one of Australia's remarkable native animals, the docile creature is surrounded by representations of gum leaves and two delicate blossoms.

An extra thick blank and deeply engraved dies are required to press this special kind of release. The finished coin features a slightly concave table with an appreciably raised relief showcasing the design in spectacular style.

Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 9,000 of these 2018 Australia $1 High Relief Koala 1oz. Silver Proof Coin in this packaging from a maximum mintage of 10,000.

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, each coin in the mintage is housed in a classic textured grey display case and stylishly illustrated shipper.
