Perth Mint to Release Bush Babies Koala Coin and Stamp First Day Cover
The coin and stamp both feature the koala, perhaps Australia’s most beloved animal. The cuddly koala ‘bear’ is not really a bear at all, but a marsupial. Protected by law, the koala lives on a diet of eucalypt leaves from the tree of the same name. This furry friend is one of the few animals that actually has fingerprints similar to humans and when distressed the koala issues a cry that has been compared to that of a human baby.
