The Koala is an Australian icon, instantly recognised the world over, so I think it's time for showing off all the koala stamps.

I'm hoping there's some we can show from other countries, not just Australia.

I'll kick it off with my favourite:-

Apart from my avatar that you just posted, the only one that comes to mind at the moment, is the joint issue with China from 1995.

I nearly missed this one. Australia, 1976, SG 636.

Gibbons describes this as "Toy koala bear and decorations".

Excuse me Mr. Gibbons, I am NOT a bear!

Koalas are also used in the margins for definitives to indicate the reprint number. For example, this is reprint number 4 for this sailboarding issue from the sports series of 1989.
