Featuring the delightful new 2014 Australian Koala design, this year’s 1/4oz gold release is a stunning new addition to the popular Koala Series.
The koala is one of Australia’s most endearing marsupials and one who spends most of its life asleep. Nocturnal by nature, the koala is known to doze for up to 20 hours a day in the dappled sunlight which penetrates the middle canopy of their favourite trees.
The coin’s reverse depicts a close-up portrait of an adult koala with a branch of eucalyptus leaves. The design includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN KOALA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’mintmark and the 2014 year-date.
