    G'day Folks,

    On offer this time round some assorted "sets" (as noted here, there is no actual collective noun for koalas as they are fairly solitary creatures and don't generally move around in groups ;)) of Perth Mint Koalas...some 2009s, 2011s, 2012s, 2013s and 2014s :) Just as a reference, 2017 Perth Mint Koalas are available for ~$29.35 here :p
    *Interesting to note that, while looking for the latest prices, I found despite a "Mint to Order" (i.e. no Maximum Mintage limit) they were often around the same totals as the Kookaburras...although it looks like 2016s were limited to 300,000 and Sold Out! The 2017 Koalas, which don't state a mintage limit, will also be squeezing out and additional 75,000 of these by releasing a
    Kangaroo Privy (50,000...Bullion pricing) and a Rooster Privy (25,000...~$5 over Bullion pricing) o_O

    Auction finish starting at 18:00 WST (20:00 QLD / 20:30 SA / 21:00 EDST) - Friday 8th Saturday 9th December... TONIGHT!!!

    *Breaking News*


    Auction finish changed to Saturday night (same time) (postponing the finish by 1 day due to unforeseen circumstances...) :D
    Apologies but heading out to a work dinner for SWMBO* (didn’t get the memo on that one o_O ) so won’t be around for the finish...just in case of the possibility that there actually gets some late bidding action for these still ridiculously cheap Koalas :p

    ALL Lots finishing at the same time!! *With the usual "5 minutes after Final bid" actual finish for each particular Lot (Forum Timestamp used) *

    Any valid bid for a particular Lot extends the Finish for ALL Lots!!
    ie. The Auction will be Officially over once ALL bids have finished!!


    **Note** As a further "clarification", highlighted from previous Auctions, any bids not deemed "valid" (ie. raising a bid on a Lot your bid is already currently leading or a bid at less than / same price as the current leading bid for a particular Lot) will NOT extend the Finish time of the Auction... (Hoping this adds clarity :rolleyes:...)

    *No edited Bids, please :) the Forum does indicate "edited" when posts are edited (look above the "Quote Reply" right hand side) so if you make a bid and it turns out the same or lower than a previous bid please place a new post for the bid to make it higher rather than "edit" the post with the unsuccessful bid - although editing to clarify a Lot # is fine :oops: *


    Due to no "seconds" showing on Forum timeclock any duplicate bids with the same timestamp will be "first in line" gets the spot ;)

    BELOW SPOT RESERVEs - Highest bid over Reserve price will be the winner on ALL Lots

    Postage at Winner's Choice/Cost/Risk (at this stage...)

    BONUS – FREE Pre-'46 Florin(s) for winners of Multiple Lots :cool:

    And without further ado, on to the Auction...

    Lot 1 - 5 * 1oz Silver Perth Mint 2009 $1 Koalas (remains of Mint Roll) - Reserve $105
    Mintage - 336,757
