The koala family’s evolution in Australia dates back some 30 to 40 million years, when it separated from its closest relative, the Australian wombat.
The coin’s reverse depicts a mother koala perched on a branch with its baby on its back. Eucalyptus leaves, radial lines and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also included in the design.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date, the weight and purity, and the monetary denomination are shown on the coin’s obverse.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and has a maximum mintage of 75,000 pieces.
The Mother & Baby 2019 2oz Silver Bullion Coin is presented without capsule in protective, convenient tubes of 10 coins. There are 10 tubes to a monster box.
