The Coin Company is proud to present 2024 Koala 2024 $5 1oz Silver High Relief Coin by The Royal Australian Mint.

Koala, among the most recognisable of Australia’s distinctive native animals, features on the Royal Australian Mint’s new gold and silver coins, minted exclusively for Emporium Hamburg for European investors and collectors. Koalas inhabit eastern and southern Australian coastal regions, living
mostly on eucalyptus leaves. Disease and loss of habitat has reduced populations and Koalas are now classed as vulnerable.

When Europeans first settled in Australia, they marveled at the unusual native animals, among them were Koalas; which they incorrectly described as a bear. Koalas were of course well known to indigenous peoples who hunted them for food. Hunting for skins for export in the 19th and early 20th centuries led to a population decline, prompting perhaps Australia’s first large-scale environmental response. Once ranked as a least concern species, Koalas are now classed as vulnerable and are fully protected under Australian environmental law.

Coin’s features the interim effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. 

2024 Koala 2024 $5 1oz Silver High Relief Coin has a limited mintage of 3,000.
