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.



Koalas have two "thumbs" on their front paws to help them grip when climbing and eating. The Koala is one of the few mammals (apart from primates) with fingerprints. Each individual's prints are distinct and they are similar in appearance to human fingerprints.
