Australia is probably best known around the world for its distinctive wildlife, which can't be found anywhere else on the planet. Notable among these oddities of the Outback is the koala, a marsupial recognized for its cute, furry appearance. With the 2015 Australian 10 oz Silver Koala (Brilliant Uncirculated), you can take one of these little guys home with you in the form of a .999 fine silver coin! Designated as legal tender with a face value of 10 Dollars, each of these coins contains a total of 10 troy ounces of actual silver weight (ASW).
The reverse of the Silver Koala debuts a fresh new design for each year. For 2015, a single adult koala is shown sitting comfortably on the crook of tree where two branches diverge. The "P" mintmark for Perth can be seen to the far right of the image. The year of issue, "2015," along with the weight and purity, "10oz 999 SILVER," are placed at the bottom rim, while the reverse legend "AUSTRALIAN KOALA" runs along the top rim.
The common obverse is graced by a right-facing effigy of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II. Around the outer rim, Her Majesty's name, the issuing country "AUSTRALIA," and the legal tender denomination "10 DOLLARS" are inscribed in bold lettering, separated by bullet points on either side of the face value.
The Silver Koala series has been released annually by the Perth Mint (Australia) since its inception in 2007, and has grabbed the attention of collectors with a new koala design each year. These 10 oz bullion coins also appeal to investors who would like to add .999 fine (99.9% pure) silver to their portfolio.
