The Australian Silver Koala Coins
Australian Silver Koala Coins are official legal tender of Australia and the finishing, weight and purity are guaranteed by the Perth mint and Western Australian Government. The front of the coin displays a koala on a tree branch. The obverse features Queen Elizabeth II. As with other Perth Mint coins the quality is very good and each coin is individually encased in a sturdy plastic case instead of a coin tube. Besides their investment value, Perth Mint coins make excellent gift Items due to their quality and individual packaging.
This is a 10 troy ounce coin, making it considerably larger than a standard 1 oz or 2 oz coin. An advantage of 10 oz coins is that the per-ounce coin premium is considerably lower compared to smaller coins. The nominal face value is 10 Australian dollars.

About the Perth Mint
The Perth Mint, wholly-owned by the State Government of Western Australia, is the official issuer of the Australian Federal Government's gold and silver bullion coin program. The Mint opened in 1899 in response to the discovery of rich gold deposits in Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie. It was Australia's third branch of Britain's Royal Mint - the others being the Sydney Mint and the Melbourne Mint (both closed).
The Perth Mint remained under Britain's jurisdiction until 1 July 1970, when ownership transferred to the State Government of Western Australia.
