AUSTRALIAN KOALA Silver Proof Coin 1 Kg Kilo 30$ Australia 2012


The koala is perhaps Australia’s most beloved and iconic animal. The cuddly koala 'bear' is not really a bear at all, but a marsupial. Protected by law, the koala inhabits trees and feeds solely on a diet of eucalypt (gum) leaves. No more than 500 coins will be released worldwide. The coin is housed in a presentation case and customised shipper featuring a coloured koala illustration.
