A mama koala and her cute baby laze-about high up in the eucalyptus trees on the back of this silver coin. A national icon of Australia, these marsupials are becoming harder to find in the wild as their habitats decrease and disease spreads. The reverse of the coin also features two Koala's cuddled in a tree and the legend, "Australian Koala, 2011 1/2 oz," and, "999 Silver." A portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse, with the inscription, "Elizabeth II, Australia," and the coin's denominational value at, "50 Cents."
Koalas are small nocturnal mammals that only grow to weigh about 30 pounds and reach a height of about two feet tall. Their long and sharp claws help them to hold onto the bark of the eucalyptus trees that they love to eat. Koalas are on the endangered species watch list, as there are only around 100,000 left in the world today.
