CoinGold Two Ounces 2020 Australian Koala

The Australian two ounces gold piece (abbreviated as 2 oz and designated with Au for "gold") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints independently authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

The Perth Mint comes issues its Australian Koala series in many formats, with the high-value gold coin considered "numismatic" issues. The reverse design changes every year, always featuring a koala - one of the most famous and distinctive animals native to Australia.

This coin is part of the Australian Koala series by the Perth Mint.

The Mint says about it:
Portraying one of our favourite marsupials, this stunning gold coin from the annual Australian Koala series showcases The Perth Mint’s magnificent high relief proof quality finish.

The Australian Koala is a sought-after coin series featuring annual designs of the much-loved koala - one of Australia’s most famous marsupials. Sleepy and docile, koalas spend most of their time either resting or eating gum leaves among the branches of Australia’s eucalyptus forests.

This 2020 high relief coin portrays an endearing image of a koala clinging to a tree branch. The noticeably raised image appears on a highly-polished concave surface.

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 200 DOLLARS ·.
