Traditionally motifs on a coin have raised relief. However, where the design is described as incused, it is pressed below the the surface of the blank. This rarely seen technique has been used to remarkable effect on the reverse of this special addition to our Australian Koala family of collectibles.
The Australian Koala is a sought-after coin series featuring annual designs of the much-loved marsupial. Sleepy and docile, koalas spend most of their time either resting or eating gum leaves among Australia’s eucalyptus forests.
The coin’s reverse portrays an incused impression of a cute koala on a tree branch – the first Australian Koala release to be struck in this way. The coin’s obverse features a traditional high relief strike of Her Majesty The Queen.
Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is presented in a classic display case which comes in a protective illustrated shipper.
Contains 1 oz of .9999 pure Silver.
