For an entire generation of children, the Tasmanian devil is little more than a cartoon character who is unintelligible and quick to aggression. He is famous for getting himself so worked up he moves around in a tornado cloud. In real life, the Tasmanian devil is a carnivorous member of the marsupial species that doesn’t move in a tornado cloud, but does make an awful lot of aggressive noise.

The Perth Mint launched the Proof Colorized Australian Dreaming Down Under Series in early 2021. The five-coin collection has some common elements and a variety of small changes with each release. All coins share the same obverse design and select reverse design elements, but the primary image on the reverse changes to reflect a different Australian native species.
Only the youngest members of each species are depicted in the reverse designs. The babies depicted sleeping soundly in these designs cover not only Australia’s most visible and recognizable native species, but also some of the most unique in the world. From the first design to this fourth release, the series has featured the Kangaroo, Koala, Dingo, and now the Tasmanian devil. The series will conclude with a late-2021 release of the Wombat.
Obverse imagery on the 2021 1/2 oz Proof Colorized Silver Dreaming Down Under Tasmanian Devil Coins includes a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the sixth-generation portrait of the Queen for Australian coins and was initially designed for the Royal Mint of England in 2015.
Reverse depictions on the 2021 Proof Colorized Silver Dreaming Down Under Tasmanian Devil Coins feature a baby Tasmanian devil. The small figure is sound asleep within the fleece-lined twig basket.
These 2021 1/2 oz Proof Colorized Silver Dreaming Down Under Tasmanian Devil Coins come with individual packaging. The Perth Mint houses each coin in its own Perth Mint black case with a clear lid. The coins come with themed shippers and a Certificate of Authenticity.
