Early European settlers initially confused these new tree-climbing animals with monkeys or bears, which is why some people still refer to the creatures as koala bears. However, koalas are actually marsupials like kangaroos and wombats. These cuddly marsupials have special physical characteristics that help their tree-dwelling lifestyle. Koalas are able to grab branches and pick eucalyptus leaves with their two opposable digits, and their tough skin and sharp claws provide traction in climbing. They even have extra thick fur on their bottoms so that they can comfortably sit on branches for hours at a time. Unique to Australia, these animals are a perfect theme for an iconic coin series.

The Perth Mint
The Perth Mint is Australia's oldest operating mint and its name has become synonymous with some of the highest standard of precious metal bullion and collectible products. Along with the kookaburra, some of The Perth Mint's most well-known coin programs include the Gold Kangaroo and Silver Kangaroo, Koala, Gold Lunar and Silver Lunar, and Gold Swan and Silver Swan programs along with a wide variety of specialty bullion releases.

History of Platinum
Historically, platinum has been more expensive than gold. In fact, platinum is actually 30 times rarer than gold. Platinum is so rare that it is mined in a few deposits around the world, with South Africa making up 80% of the total reserve. Platinum is often referred to as the rich man’s gold due to its prestigious uses in jewelry. Platinum is more frequently used for industrial purposes such as catalytic converters. Today, platinum trades lower than gold, even though it is much rarer than its counterpart, which is why many investors have turned to platinum for their investment needs.
