2018 Australian Koala set to rouse silver bullion coin market

Topics [ silver bullion coins silver bullion Perth Mint Australian Koala where to buy silver ]

The 12th annual issue of the Australian Koala Silver Bullion Coin series is released today.

Struck from 99.99% pure silver, the 2018 coins are offered in two sizes both featuring a representation of the famously sleepy marsupial astride two branches in a flowering eucalyptus tree.

 

The attractive design is portrayed on the 1oz coin in a superior bullion finish combining both frosted and shiny design elements. No more than 300,000 will be made available worldwide.

Representing one of the most cost-effective ways to acquire silver bullion in the trusted format of Australian legal tender, its kilo cousin features a fully frosted finish.

Australian Koala coins are part of the official Australian Bullion Coin Program manufactured exclusively by The Perth Mint. Sought worldwide for the purity of their gold, silver and platinum as well as their popular designs, the coins appeal to investors seeking the protective attributes of precious metals within a diversified portfolio.

To purchase 2018 Australian Koala coins or other releases from the program, customers are encouraged to call the BullionLine on 1300 201 112 (Australia) / +61 8 9421 7218 (International), or visit The Perth Mint Bullion Trading Desk at 310 Hay Street in East Perth (open 7 days).

2017 Silver Kangaroo set for success after sales of 2016 coin leap past 11 million

Topics [ Australian Kangaroo silver investing silver bullion silver coins buy silver coins ]

The Perth Mint is pleased to announce that the 2017 Australian Kangaroo 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is available earlier than originally scheduled.

Released today, the new issue follows an exceptional debut in 2016 for Australia’s first 99.99% (four nines) pure silver bullion coin. With sales in excess of 11 million, factors behind its success included an iconic design, micro-engraved security feature, and extremely competitive pricing.

 

Now an established annual release from Australia’s official bullion coin program, the Silver Kangaroo is an ideal proposition for anyone seeking the safety of precious metals in a volatile economic landscape. Contributing to investors’ confidence in the coin is the trusted reputation of the 117-year old Perth Mint.

One of the world’s leading integrated refining and minting enterprises, the Mint operates Australia’s only gold and silver refinery accredited by the London Bullion Market Association. As well as producing benchmark good delivery bars and a wide range of retail investment bars, it has made almost 51 million bullion and numismatic coins over the past 30 years, which are admired for their weight, purity and designs.

The 2017 Australian Silver Kangaroo features a ‘red kangaroo’ based on the historical design first witnessed on Australian bullion coins in 1989. Like its immediate predecessor, the new coin benefits from a tiny letter ‘A’ in the reverse inscription as verification of its authenticity.

250-coin mini-monster box

Offered individually, the highly affordable Silver Kangaroo can also be acquired in tubes of 25 coins or in mini-monster boxes containing 250 coins - allowing buyers to take advantage of attractive volume discounts. The mini-monster box is perfect for secure storage in third-party safe deposit boxes.

 

Available from the Mint’s Bullion Trading Desk; via the BullionLine on 1300 201 112 (Australia) or +61 8 9421 7218 (International); and at perthmintbullion.com, the 2017 Australian Kangaroo 1oz Silver Bullion Coin can also be purchased through leading coin dealers.
