1/2 oz Australian Koala  Silver Bullion Coin

2008 - 2015

Australia's renowned Perth Mint produces all of the Silver Koala bullion coins, which are legal tender, indicating the Government of Australia guarantees their precious metal content.

Design of the
1/2 oz Australian Koala
Silver Bullion Coin


2008 - Australian 1/2 oz. Silver Koala Bullion Coin - obverse (png)

Queen Elizabeth II's effigy, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, is the focal point of the obverse side.


  • 2008 - Year of Issue
  • 50 CENTS
  • IRB - initials of designer Ian Rank-Broadley

From 2008 to 2010, the obverse side of the silver koala included the "Year of Issue."

Then, in 2011, the Perth Mint removed the date from the obverse side and began to inscribe the coins' Year of Issue on the reverse side of the silver bullion coin.

The edge, often considered to be the third side of the coin, is reeded.

The reverse side of the silver bullion coin receives a new portrait of a Koala in different poses and settings each year.

The 2008 1/2 oz Australian Koala silver bullion coin displays a Koala mother holding onto a eucalyptus tree branch while her baby clings to her back.


  • 1/2 OZ
  • 999 SILVER
  • P - mint mark of the Perth Mint
  • SB  - initials of Shevaun Buschenhofen designer of reverse side
