      Hi Judy,

      I believe it is out of stock at The Perth Mint but if you do a google search for “bush babies koala coin” there should be some available at smaller coin dealers. Alternatively you could try to look up coin dealers in your area and ask them if they can source one for you. eBay will also have a few.

      I hope that helps!

      Kind regards,
