The culture of Australia is complex. The vast, open expanses of Australia lend itself to a number of different cultures and groups. But the reputation of the country has been largely shaped by the wildlife that inhabits the massive continent. Some folks consider Australia to be a hellscape of dangerous animals, including snakes, massive spiders, and violent beasts. While this is true in a sense, it is important to remember that adorable critters are also native to Australia. The kangaroo and koala both inhabit Australia, and the likenesses of these cuddly creatures have become symbols of Australia and its peoples.
The 2021 Australia 1 Kilo Silver Koala Coin offers consumers the opportunity to celebrate the beauty (and cuteness) of the Australian koala with a massive coin. Buying larger silver coins is a great way to cut down on premium costs, making this coin both an excellent investment and a beautiful collectable piece. Despite its size, this coin is still legal tender in Australia, and it remains backed by Australia’s classic Perth Mint.

Is there any animal cuter and more beloved than the koala? The critter is recognized all over the world, and it has become an image closely associated with the country and people of Australia. This coin celebrates the beautiful likeness of the koala. Here, he rests on the top of a eucalyptus tree. The eucalyptus tree is the natural habitat of the koala; it eats the eucalyptus and finds refuge from the hot Australian sun under its shade. The reverse side of this coin also includes the inscription “Australian Koala,” as well as the year, weight, and material of the piece.
Flipping the coin over allows onlookers a reminder of the royal origins of the coin. Jody Clark’s classic depiction of Queen Elizabeth II adorns this half of the piece. In this depiction, she wears her crown, pearl necklace, and earrings. The obverse also includes inscription of the Queen’s name, the name “Australia,” and the face value of the coin (30 AUD). The one kilo striking of the coin is an exceptional value; larger silver pieces allow you to cut down on premium costs, providing more bang for your buck.
