Story

The wisdom of wombats

Did you know that a group of wombats is called a ‘wisdom’? Perfectly built for tunnelling with powerful limbs and claws as well as rodent-like front teeth, these iconic Australian marsupials are the largest burrowing mammals in the world.

Muscular marsupial

The coin portrays a muscular wombat standing on all fours. As well as the inscription ‘WOMBAT’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the reverse includes the coin’s weight, purity and 2022 year-date.

The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.

Authentication feature

The coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.

Presentation

Presented in a protective acrylic capsule, the Wombat 2022 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is subject to a limited mintage of just 25,000.
