In 2007, Perth Mint created the Australian silver koala coin and had a hit on their hands. The silver koala is the second-oldest of Perth Mint’s annually-released silver bullion coins (only the silver kookaburra has been around longer). Like the mint’s other annual coin series, the silver koala has a new reverse design every year, always featuring a koala (otherwise they’d probably have to change the name). 

A close look at the 2022 1 oz silver koala coin

The 2022 silver koala coin features a napping koala, head pillowed on one arm, with its opposite arm and leg dangling precariously from the branch of a eucalyptus tree. Fun fact: because koalas primarily eat eucalyptus leaves which don’t offer much in the way of nutrition or calories, they typically spend a stunning 20 hours per day asleep. So if you saw a koala in the wild in Queensland or Victoria, you’d likely see a scene very similar to this one! Note the koala’s splayed right hand, which clearly shows the creature’s unique arrangement of digits: two thumbs, three fingers. 

At the upper right edge, the year of minting, weight, metal and purity (“9999 SILVER”) are indicated. 

This year’s design comes from famed Perth Mint designer Ing Ing Jong. She also designed an American bald eagle proof silver coin, a Year of the Snake coin for the Lunar Series and the 2014 Mother’s Love coin, all for Perth Mint. 

You’ll note Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse of 2022 Australian silver Koala Coins. This is the right-profile portrait from Jody Clark’s 2015 design, in use by Perth Mint since 2018. Her Majesty is portrayed as a regal, mature 89 years old, wearing her coronation earrings and necklace along with the State Diadem Crown made in 1820 for King George IV, her uncle (traditionally worn by queens to the State Openings of Parliament).

About the Australian silver koala

Every year since their 2007 launch, the Australian silver koala series generates intense demand. The changing reverse design and their choice of such a charismatic critter has turned the koala coin into collector catnip. Silver koala coins are minted in a variety of weights: 1/10 oz (since 2011), 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 10 oz and 1 kg (32ish oz). In 2018, silver koala coins were upgraded from 0.999 to 0.9999 fine silver (10x purer than the American silver eagle). Some years, a variety of privy-marked bullion coins are also available. 

With an ever-changing, world-class design, such cuddly subject matter and of course their high silver purity, the Australian silver koala series has been a worldwide favorite. 

Highlights of the 2022 Australian koala silver coin:

  • 16th year of Perth Mint’s koala series
  • Limited mintage of only 300,000 coins
  • 1 troy oz 0.9999 fine silver in brilliant, uncirculated condition
  • Official Australian currency, $1 face value
  • Utterly charming design of a lazy, napping koala from world-class coin designer Ing Ing Jong
  • We ship individual coins in a protective plastic flip case

How long before you ship my order?
Once your payment has cleared, we will begin processing, packaging, and shipping your order. How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.


Do you ship internationally?
No, not at this time. 


How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes. 


How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships. 


Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.


Can you ship my order to my post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a post office box. 


Do I have to sign for my shipment?
Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.


Do you ship to U.S. territories?
We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.


What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.


Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California.  We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.


Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?
No, we do not. The costs of shipping to these states are extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.


Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?
No, we do not. Sorry.


Do you ship to UPS store locations?
No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.


My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection. 
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.


What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
