    Hi.

    I have been offered a 1993 2oz $100 Platinum Koala at a very good price.

    I have not seen this coin yet.

    My research cannot find a $100 2 oz platinum Koala as all 2 oz platinum Koala coins are $200.

    Was a 1993 2 oz Koala minted with a $100 face value?

    Just trying to protect myself beforee I hand over the cash.

    Never seen it documented on the net, but seen people asking about them as they have them and not sure what it is.
    This 10 feedback person on eBay sold it twice already as platinum, once for $2200 and $2500 after probably getting it from the 30 feedback guy as toy. You can even see on his listing that the other side of his coin is a different item.

    Hello

    The question that remains is if it is at least platinum. It is now offered on the austrian Ebay page as a medal:
