Winsome wombat

Equipped with powerful limbs and flattened claws, wombats are among the world’s largest burrowing animals. Like other marsupials, a baby develops inside its mother’s pouch, which in this species faces backwards for protection during digging.

Delightful design

The coin depicts a young wombat in a fleece-lined twig basket – a prop that has created a popular trend in newborn photography among parents all around the world. As well as sprays of colourful flowers, the design also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
