The history of the Australian stock horse dates back to the arrival of Australia’s first horses with the First Fleet of 1788. Bred to endure the harsh conditions of the colony’s vast outback, their agility, strength and endurance meant they became superbly suited to herding and exploration work. Today, Australia’s legendary stock horse is regarded as the breed for every need, including a wide range of modern day equestrian activities including polocross, camp drafting, and eventing.

Since 2013, The Perth Mint has portrayed images of the iconic stock horse on Australian bullion coins each struck from 1oz of pure silver. Within the maximum mintage of 10,000, a limited issue of just 1,000 coins is released annually for collectors in illustrated card packaging.

With strong demand for each of the previous four issues resulting in a rapid sell out, it’s odds on the 2017 Australian Stock Horse 1oz Silver Coin and Card will become another favourite!

  1. Hi Blog Team,

    Allow me the question why the Stockhorse coin is being issue still in a carded version (only limited to 1,000) as the carded Koala coin has been canceled with the statement that Australian gouvernment is raising GSt on carded version(Ron Curie told me that on WMF fair once as one reason). I know that the demand for the carded Koala coins was in the past higher than the limited issue of the Stockhorse is now with its 1,000 issues.
    But why has it been stopped then or why don´t you start issuing Koalas as carded version again at least on special occasions as before?
    Many Koala coin collectors would apprecciate it.

    Kind regards
    Norbert
