Two of Australia's Most Beloved Animals
Are NOW Available In 1-oz Silver For 2011
Panda America is proud to offer two beautiful 1-ounce silver coins for the year 2011 representing two of Australia's most popular animals - The Koala and the Kookaburra! Both coins are struck from 1-ounce of 99.9% PURE silver and are among the most popular issues made in Australia.
The highly appealing silver Koala coin features two cuddly and adorable koalas lounging on a tree branch. This image, which incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, appears on a unique ‘solid’ background. The 2011 issue is the fifth year in which a Koala coin has been made.
Next up is the silver Kookaburra coin. Kookaburras are best known for their unmistakable call, which is very loud and reminiscent of human laughter - a good-natured cackling that is commonly heard in Australia's arid and residential areas. An Australia coin series dedicated to the Kookaburra has been made since 1990.
Both coins are issued as legal tender and both coins bear the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse. The Australian silver koala and kookaburra coins would make an excellent addition to anyone's coin collection.
