The 2011 1 oz Australian Silver Koala Coin PCGS SP69 Gilded has been struck in 99.9% fine silver and is considered a full legal tender under the government of Australia. The gilded quality featured with this coin means that certain design elements on the coin feature thin layers of 24-karat gold, making this a truly special release for the series. The PCGS has given this coin a grade of SP69, meaning the coin is a near-perfect specimen with no more than two minor flaws. These flaws may be minuscule hairline markings or contact marks that must be located outside the main focal point of the coin.
First released in 2007 by the Perth Mint, the Australian Silver Koala Coin collection has featured multiple bullion products over its four years of production. This coin series helps to represent some of Australia’s most famous wildlife, with the koala being at the center of this collection.
On the obverse of the 2011 1 oz Australian Silver Koala Coin PCGS SP69 Gilded is the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, seen from her right-facing profile. The effigy of the Queen is used on many bullion releases around the world so she can be honored as a renowned leader. The obverse on this 2011 coin shows Queen Elizabeth II wearing her magnificent crown.
The reverse imagery of the 2011 1 oz Australian Silver Koala Coin PCGS SP69 Gilded features a koala family sitting on branches in a tree. This reverse design features intense detailing of the koalas, so the viewer is able to make out the animal’s furry ears, rough skin, and fur.
