2018 Niue 2 Ounce Koala 4 Verso Gold Plated Proof Like Silver Coin Set
Presenting the latest issue in this new milestone in modern coin minting – meet the first square coin with 4 rotating designs. Struck from 2 Ounces of .999 pure silver and partly gold plated, it honors the revered Australian Koala. The inner part of the coin is movable and can be turned around so that the reverse becomes the obverse or vice versa. One side is .999 gold plated and the other side features the pure silver surfaces.
The Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus, or, inaccurately, koala bear) is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae and its closest living relatives are the wombats, which comprise the family Vombatidae. The koala is found in coastal areas of the mainland's eastern and southern regions, inhabiting Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia. It is easily recognisable by its stout, tailless body and large head with round, fluffy ears and large, spoon-shaped nose.
With the worldwide mintage limited to only 999 pieces worldwide, each coin is delivered in a beautiful wooden presentation case. This high quality coin with four exquisite designs is sure to delight even the most demanding coin collectors.
