Last month, the Perth Mint of Australia took the bullion world by storm with an all-new series: The Next Generation. All of the coins in this product line feature both a mother and baby of various iconic Australian animals. The series kicked off with a striking two-ounce silver piedfort featuring two koala bears. Given The Next Generation’s innovative format and gorgeous design, we knew the coin would be successful. However, sales blew past even our most optimistic projections. The coin became an instant best-seller and one of the most in-demand 2018 silver coins we offer.
One reason why the 2018 Next Generation 2 oz Koala is so popular: it’s both a collectible and bullion piece. From an investor’s standpoint, it’s a low-cost way to own sovereign-minted silver. Silver buyers appreciate the coin’s government guarantee and attractive premium. From a numismatic standpoint, meanwhile, the coin has obvious appeal. It’s the first-ever coin in a brand new series, boasts a fetching design, and presents wonderfully in person. If you’ve never seen one in the flesh, the 2018 Silver 2 oz Koala is quite impressive.
If you want to add a 2018 Next Generation Koala to your collection, we have something special for you today. We’re excited to offer a limited quantity of specimens graded MS69 and MS70 by NGC. Not only are these coins in impeccable condition, but they’ve also received the important First Day of Issue designation. That is, NGC has certified that these coins were among the very first to be released by the Perth Mint.
Since these coins are piedforts, they’re encapsulated in extra-thick NGC holders. After all, a double-thick coin requires a special case! Plus, the NGC has paired these coins with a highly attractive label displaying the Australian flag and the iconic Ayers rock. Between the coin and the NGC label, the overall presentation is superb! However, the label is more than just decorative; it also confirms the coin’s unique NGC serial number, grade, and official First Day of Issue status.
These perfect and near-perfect Koalas have many positives, but there’s just one bit of bad news. Unfortunately, we have very few of these NGC-certified coins, and quantities are very limited. If you’re interesting in picking up one of these NGC MS 69/70 Koalas, we strongly urge you to do so quickly. Very few coins were graded by NGC altogether, let alone in such high grade or with the FDI designation. Given the massive quantity of ungraded Next Generation Koalas we sold, there may not be enough certified coins to go around.
Take advantage of this opportunity to own one of 2018’s most exciting new coins in ultra-high grade! Whether you’re a Perth Mint connoisseur or simply wanting to add something truly beautiful to your collection, don’t miss today’s unusual offering.
