2011 Australian Silver Koala

The 2011 Australian Koala is beginning to have some similarity with the Kookaburra. The reverse of the coin has the wordings 'AUSTRALIAN KOALA' like the Kookaburra. The obverse, unlike the first 4 issues, has done away with the mint year hence it looks similar to the obverse used on the Kookaburra coins.
