This series of .9999 fine silver coins is struck by the Perth Mint. The first Koala and Baby coin was struck in both 2 oz and 10 oz.
The baby crocodile is shown perched on its mother’s snout. This fearsome denizen of the Outback is surprisingly maternal. The mama croc protects her young from the moment they hatch until at least 3 months later. All of The Next Generation coins will display a mother and baby from an Australian Outback species, while the obverse shows portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In addition, each Next Generation coin includes the enhanced security element of micro-engraved radial lines.
This series also includes an unusual aspect, all of the coins will be struck as Piedfort coins. This means that the coins, while the same diameter as Perth’s standard round silver coins of the same weight, will be double the thickness.
