This spectacular 2oz silver high relief coin features the koala nestled in a tree. Each koala’s ‘home' is made up of several trees called home trees. The area covered by these trees is known as the koala’s home range. Koala’s visit these same trees regularly. Each koala has its own home range, which overlaps those of other koalas. The size of each home range depends upon numerous factors including the quality of the habitat, and the gender, age, and social position of a koala in its population.
