About the Piedfort Design
Piedforts take their name from the French words for ‘heavy weight’. This type of extra thick coin was first struck in France during the 12th century.
The Mother and Baby 2018 2oz Silver Bullion Piedfort has the same diameter as our 1oz coin but is double the thickness.
Featuring one of Australia’s favourite native animals, it depicts a mother koala perched on a branch carrying a joey (baby) on her back.
Australian Legal Tender
The coin is issued as legal tender. The coin’s obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse, and the monetary denomination.
