Perth Mint’s Australian Koala series was first introduced to the public in 2007. That inaugural release was an immediate global success. The popularity of the series has only grown from there. Anticipation builds towards each annual release, as Perth prepares to unveil a new koala design. For 2018, the new reverse design leverages a mix of both frosted and brilliant design elements to bring out a nice sense of depth to the scene. The single koala is poised on a branch of a flowering eucalyptus tree. It is grasping this limb tightly while it reaches forward with one free hand, inching further out on the limb. This is a very attractive and pleasing design.
With the release of the 2018 Silver Kookaburra, Perth Mint is marking the 28th year of the series. From its introduction in 1990, the Kookaburra’s popularity worldwide has been remarkable. Perth has a surprise for us with this 2018 Silver Kookaburra! Not only are they continuing their annual unveiling of a new design, but also this year, the series is increasing its silver purity from .999 to .9999! This is certain to further boost the enthusiastic popularity of the Kookaburra.
The new reverse design features a Kookaburra in flight, against the backdrop of a full moon. The bird all but fills the entire reverse field, with its sharp beak reaching almost to the coin’s rim. Its tail feathers also nearly touch the rim. Its wings are spread high, and the fine detail provides much depth. The way the Kookaburra’s right wing superimposes the view of the moon also creates a nice depth of view to the design.
The Perth Mint is proud to release the 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Kangaroo. Struck in .9999 fine silver, this Australian bullion coin is a treasure for investors as well as collectors. Since its first release in 1993 it has continued to gain global approval as a fine investment. The 2018 1 oz Silver Kangaroo features a gorgeous design, first introduced in 2016.
The Kangaroo is universally recognized as one of the three most iconic examples of Australian Outback wildlife. Of course, the other two are the Koala and Kookaburra. Perth Mint’s annual release of their silver bullion Kangaroo features a lively scene of a finely detail Red Kangaroo, jumping in mid-air. The background is filled with a stunning starburst design, radiating out from the coin’s center. A wavy-line border pattern encircles the rim. Inscriptions are displayed in the border, including “AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO” at the top, and “2018 1 oz 9999 SILVER” at the bottom. The “P” Perth mintmark is at the right, in the border.
