The wombat is a muscular marsupial that can reach up to 40 inches in length and weigh anywhere from 44 pounds to 77 pounds. The wombat is known for its small, stubby tail and muscular frame.

The obverse of the 2021 Proof Colorized Silver Australian Dreaming Down Under Wombat Coins features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. Created in 2015 by Jody Clark, the design captures Queen Elizabeth II at the age of 89.
On the reverse side of 2021 1/2 oz Proof Colorized Silver Australian Dreaming Down Under Wombat Coins is a depiction of a sleeping wombat. The wombat is the only marsupial with a reverse pouch. Like all marsupials, young wombats are held in their mother’s pouch. However, the wombat’s pouch is reverse of other marsupials to protect the young wombat as its mother tunnels and burrows. The wombat is shown in a hue of dark brown and black, with the twig basket and fleece lining captured in realistic colors as well.
