Charming koalas

Koalas have their own 'home' environment, which is made up of several trees known as home trees. Koala’s visit these same trees, known as their home range regularly. The size of each home range, which overlaps with that of other koalas, depends on numerous factors including the quality of the habitat, gender, age and social position of a koala.

Antiqued design

The reverse of the coin depicts an adult koala sleeping in a eucalyptus tree surrounded by gumnuts, gum leaves and gum blossoms. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. To capture the depth and detail of the design, the coin is struck in high relief to a rimless format and features an antique finish.
