The Perth Mint has released the very unique Koala Opal coin.
The coin is in a display case, a light turns on when the case is opened representing the moon shining down on the nocturnal koala. The 1 oz silver and opal coin is accompanied by a colourful, beautifully designed packing box. The Opal pieces are put together in the shape of a Koala in a tree.
I do not comment on many new coin releases unless they are something special. This one, also the first in the series, has the potential to do as well as the Tasmanian Tiger and Red Back Spider coins. It is selling very well in overseas markets, a tell tale sign of its future performance. In my store I cannot remember a new coin selling so well on the first few days of release.
If you are at all interested in this coin make a purchase soon. I have a few in stock.
What do you think of this coin, leave a comment.
