Introduction

Tavex is pleased to offer the Australian Silver Koala coin, one of Australia’s iconic silver bullion pieces. Introduced in 2007 by the renowned Perth Mint, the Australian Silver Koala coin stands as the world's inaugural silver bullion coin with limitless mintage and an ever-changing main motif.

This coin, bearing a face value of 1 Australian dollar, holds legal tender status in Australia and is affordably priced, making it an attractive choice for collectors and those seeking long-term value. As a trusted partner of the Perth Mint, Tavex offers competitive rates for this captivating silver coin in any desired quantity.

Why Buy

  • Australian Silver Koala coins track the price of silver. The value of Koala coins is primarily determined by their fine silver content which is linked to the prevailing price of silver. 
  • The price of Australian Silver Koalas will rise with inflation. Silver has proven itself throughout history to be a great asset in times of high inflation, appreciating faster and higher than most other assets.
  • Australian Silver Koala coins are money. Koala silver bullion coins are legal tender in Australia and are accepted and exchanged as such over large parts of the world. 
  • Australian Silver Koala coins are available at a low premium. As a partner of the Perth Mint, Tavex is able to offer market leading prices for Silver Koala coins. 
  • Silver Koalas are internationally recognised. As the only legal tender silver bullion coin in the world to portray a koala, an animal native to Australia, recognition of these coins is ensured worldwide. 
  • This coin is .999 pure silver. Buying silver Australian Koalas are a great addition to any investment portfolios and a way to own this precious white metal physically.
  • Australian Silver Koala coins are the equivalent of savings. The historical low price of silver compared to gold makes it an ideal asset to purchase either for people who wish to purchase smaller amounts. Or equally, for those who believe they are getting more precious metal for their “buck”, in anticipation of a steeper appreciation of the price of silver compared with gold.

History

The Silver Koala coin depicts Australia’s famous marsupial  

The koala is a marsupial native to the eastern and southern parts of Australia. Although not in any way related to bears, the word bear is added to their name as they have a distinct look of a small teddy bear. The name “koala” derives from an indigenous Australian language which means “animal that does not drink”. In fact, koalas will rarely drink water as they receive most of their needed water from their main source of food: eucalyptus leaves. They grow to be between 60 and 90 cm high and are characterised by their black short nose and large fluffy ears. What is fascinating about the koala is its ability to base its diet on leaves from the eucalyptus tree which in general are highly toxic to most mammals and contain low levels of beneficial nutrients. To cope with this peculiar low energy diet, the koala will limit its energy use by sleeping between 17-20 hours per day.

The Perth Mint

The Perth Mint is a world distinguished mint and precious metals refiner that is located in the City of Perth, in Western Australia. The Perth Mint was founded in 1896 by Britain’s Royal Mint in response to the newly discovered gold deposits in Western Australia. Perth Mint’s task was to refine gold ore from the mines and to strike sovereign gold coins from the refined bullion. Between 1899 and 1931 the Pert Mint produced  a considerable amount of gold sovereigns which were distributed in Australia  and throughout the British Empire to be used as circulating currency. British control over Perth Mint was relinquished in 1971 to the Government of Western Australia which then assumed ownership of  the  mint.  Today,  the  Perth  Mint  is  hailed  for  the exceptional  quality  of  its  world  class investment bullion coins like the Kookaburra and Koala silver coins, and the Lunar Series. The Perth Mint has been a member of the London Gold Market (predecessor of the LBMA) since 1934. The swan design, which is the Mint’s official assay stamp registered with the LBMA, is recognised internationally and was inspired by the Mint’s location in Perth, where the main river, the Swan, runs through the city.
