Sold out at the Mint! Wowsers, it's the Little Aussies Bimetal Set! Here's an ultra low mintage coin show special that unites pure gold with pure silver! But no, you don't have to pay a mint to get both these precious metals together, thanks to Talisman Coins and the Perth Mint, Australia's precious metals experts. While they last, these cute gold kangaroo and silver koala sets are extremely affordable. Best of all, they come together in one convenient, bimetal set featuring these two favorite Australian animals, beautifully depicted on the full color packaging and exquisitely minted in everyone's two favorite precious metals! But don't forget the mintage limit! Issued for the ANA World's Fair of Money in Chicago, Illinois, are only 2,000 of these show specials to go around - far too few to satisfy demand.

Availability Note - Only 2,000 of these special edition sets will be issued, and they sold out very quickly at the Mint. Due to the extreme rarity and low price of this set, we reserve the right to limit quantities to ensure a fairer distribution.

Koala Mother & Baby Pure Silver Dime
A mother koala eats the tasty leaves of the eucalyptus tree while her young joey pokes his head out of her pouch to see what's going on.The koala is one of the iconic symbols of Australia, made all the more desirable by the Perth Mint's execution of this cute and cuddly critter in pure silver, artistically rendered in a reverse proof finish. This year, a bright-eyed baby joey watches us from the fork of a gum or eucalyptus tree, while itself being observed by the watchful eye of the mother koala. The designer of the 2011 Koala program vignette is Elise Martinson, who is also the creator of the original artwork for both the coins and the colorful, outer boxes for the Bush Babies series. Elise is an Australian artist, graphic designer, and illustrator who loves animals.

This Pure Silver Koala has a face value of 10 cents - the first everdime in the Koala series! This inexpensive, pure silver gem makes the perfect gift and represents a superb way to introduce kids (and hitherto clueless adults) to the fascinating world of coin collecting. Its desirable animal motif, its affordability, and the fact that it's struck in pure silver will further contribute to its popularity. We advise you to acquire one or more while the opportunity lasts!

The Gold Nugget
Australia is also known for the incredible size and shape of gold nuggets found in the outback. In fact, the largest gold nugget ever found, the Welcome Stranger, was found in 1869 in Victoria, Australia. Its gross weight was 3523.5 troy ounces, so it was more like a gold stone than a gold nugget! The largest gold nugget still in existence, the Hand of Faith, was also discovered in Australia, in 1980, by a metal detectorist. It weighs 874.82 troy ounces.
