Like all young marsupials, a baby koala is known as a joey – a shy and defenceless version of its adult protectors. Beautifully realised, the artistry on this coin captures the creature’s vulnerability to perfection.

Dreamy Design

The coin depicts a cute baby koala asleep in a fleece-lined twig basket – a prop that has created a popular trend in newborn photography among parents all around the world. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design also incorporates colourful Australian native flowers and wildlife.

Presentation Packaging

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid and a beautifully illustrated shipper.
