The Little Dinkums coin collection lovingly celebrates Australia's favourite creatures. The Royal Australian Mint had
commissioned artist Ben Hutchings to design six characters for a coin collection named Little Dinkums. They were Petey Platypus,
Kip Koala, Kato Cockatoo, Tinga the Tasmanian Tiger, LilyPilly Lizard and finally Binny Bilby. This coin was struck in Gold
at a size of just 14mm.The
The Koala is one of the most lovable creatures in the world. There are actually marsupials and not bears as most people think. They are nocturnal and spend most of their time relaxing in the trees. Koalas are a protected species in Australia, but unfortunately the habitat of the Koala is not. Due to continuing building, many trees are felled and this causes great stress to the Koala. It is researched that there are currently forty to eighty thousand Koalas left in Australia and their numbers dwindle by the day. Probably only between 40,000 to 80,000 koalas remain in Australia.
