Comments

Issued by the RAM in a tall Coincard in 2008 is this NCLT Pad Printed/Colourised Reverse Frosted $1 Aluminium-bronze coin. It is part of the six coin Land Animals Series of coins issued in individual Coincards in 2008-2009.


With thick, rough pads of skin on its feet to prevent slipping, this wallaby can climb up sloping tree trunks. When the Rock Wallaby senses danger it will stomp the ground with its hind legs as a warning to others.
