    Good Evening Stackers,
    I am hoping someone can enlighten me as to the carded silver Koala coins, when did the series start? What denominations do they come in? What is a fair ball park price for each one etc.

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers BM

    Hi AgAuNews,

    Do not forget to mention the carded 0.5 gram BU gold Koalas issued from 2013 to 2015:

    and the special issue for the launch of the 1/10oz silver Koala on WMF fair in Berlin:

    and the Chicago ANA fair release 2011>

    I have made a compilation of all carded versions with the actually known mintage figures:

    The Koala in a Baby Pack looks like this one from 2011:

    I think someone posted this on this web site, I kept a copy

    The mintage for the official Perth Mint Koala carded coins is:

    2007 3,060

    2008 4,601

    2009 6,292

    2010 2,752

    2011 11,865

    2012 2,315

    2013 TBA about April 2013 or earlier if Perth "declare" the coin.

    The 2013 carded Koala coin is the first coloured coin in the series.

    The carded Koala coins series started with the release of the 2007 1oz Koala.

    There are also even-rarer carded varieties issued by Perth...the most expensive and most eagerly sort is the 2007 carded Koala "World Money Fair Berlin Coin Show Special (2-4 February 2007)

    There are similar carded coins that have a green card...they "are-not" official Perth carded coins, they are re-packackaged coins for Downies and should not be confused with "official" releases by The Perth Mint.
