Product Information

 

The first coin in this spectacular new series sold out, so it’s advisable to move quickly to secure the second release featuring the wonderful wombat.

The wombat is a marsupial native to Australia, and known for its determined personality.  Wombats are completely herbivorous and feed from a variety of grasses, roots, fungi, shrubs, bark and mosses.  The wombat has a backwards-facing pouch, so that while digging burrows, dirt does not spill over its young. 

New and Innovative Coin Design

The coin’s reverse incorporates an inner panel design of a wombat detailed in pure Australian opal. The outer panel of the coin depicts Bottlebrush leaves and blossoms, a waxing crescent moon and the Southern Cross – a renowned star group which is only visible in the Southern hemisphere.

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Limited Mintage

No more than 8,000 of these coins will be issued by The Perth Mint.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year-date and the monetary denomination.

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity

The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Beautiful Presentation Packaging

Presented in a prestigious display case, a light turns on as you open the case, highlighting the opal design and symbolising moonlight, shining down on the nocturnal wombat.
