Since its first year of issue in 1988, the 1oz Australian Koala Platinum coin has remained a leader in world investment coin markets. As legal tender, the 1oz Platinum Koala carries a face value of $100 and is still produced today as a globally recognized investment in the precious metal market.
Each Platinum Koala coin is beautifully designed and extensively frosted, with a radiant brilliance not found on other platinum bullion coins. Australia was the first major nation in modern times to produce a one ounce platinum bullion coin as legal tender. First struck in 1988 by the Perth Mint, the design of the Koala displayed on the obverse (front side) has changed almost annually, making these platinum coins very popular with both platinum investors and world coin collectors.
Contrary to popular belief, Koalas are not bears; they are related to the kangaroo and the wombat species. Nicknamed the “Koala Bear” by English speaking settlers in the late 18th century because of their resemblance to the teddy bear, the population of Australian koalas has dropped by 90% in the past decade due to the destruction of the koala's natural habitat.
