The fifth coin in the six-coin Australia Map Shaped Coin Series from The Perth Mint features the iconic koala, one of Australia’s most recognisable marsupials.
One of the most recognisable symbols of Australia, the beloved koala is perfectly adapted for its environment. With its grey fur and bear-like appearance, this marsupial lives in trees and feeds only on a specific type of eucalypt leaf.
