The 2011 Australian Gold Proof Koala

The Perth Mint has released the 2011 edition of the Gold Proof Koala coin – marking the 4th annual appearance of the coin since first minted in 2008.  It features a reverse design of an adult Koala sitting in the fork of a tree and the 1oz coin has an edition limit of just 2,000.  

As the counterpart to the popular Silver Koala issued by the Mint, the Gold Koala is highly regarded by collectors worldwide – with the 2010 2oz edition of the coin selling out completely of its edition limit of 250. 

Indeed, Perth Mint issues in general have a strong appeal globally due to their reputation for high quality pieces – which in turn has led to a number of sell-out issues over the last 2 years.
