This side of the coin also displays the coin’s monetary denomination. Flip it over to the reverse side and you will see Australia’s signature koala resting along the bottom of a eucalyptus tree. Another glorious eucalyptus tree is pictured in the background.
The koala is revered throughout the world for its cute appearance and general lovable nature. When the first European settlers tumbled upon koalas in Australia, they viewed these tree-climbing creatures as a new type of bear or monkey. Though some still refer to the animal as a “koala bear”, it is officially classified as a marsupial like a wombat or kangaroo. Koalas are quite intriguing as they can gather eucalyptus leaves and hold onto branches with two opposable fingers. Their claws are incredibly sharp. They have rough skin and uber-thick fur that allows them to rest on coarse branches for hours on end. There is no doubt the koala is the ideal theme for this coin series. Additional aesthetic markings on the reverse side include the coin’s weight, year of production and the Perth Mint’s “P” mintmark.
