Australian Platinum Koala

learn | Published On February 04, 2015 by Gainesville Coins
Australian Platinum Koala Coin

The Platinum Koala is an Australian platinum bullion coin minted by the Perth Mint and is the most famous series of platinum coins of Australia. The coin was first minted in 1988 in Perth and quickly became the world's "largest selling and first international tradeable investment coin". Together with the American Platinum Eagle, the Platinum Koala is one of the very few series of platinum coins that are still being produced. The Koala is registered as legal tender in Australia and each coin has a true face value.
