Dating back to 1990, the Perth Mint has a rich history of using native animal species as the foundation of its annual gold, silver, and platinum coin programs. One of the first issues was a Platinum Platypus, but production really took off when Perth introduced the Silver Kookaburra in 1990. From there, the Gold Nugget became the Gold Kangaroo, the Silver Koala was introduced in 2007, the Silver Wedge Tail Eagle in 2015, the Silver Kangaroo in 2016, and other coins such as the Emu and Quokka in the years since.
All of these 2022 1 oz Colorized Silver Australian Wombat Coins are available to you for purchase with an individual presentation card. Coins in this listing are sealed in a capsule space within the presentation card and the card itself has stencil artwork capturing a different view of the wombat than offered on the coin. Each coin comes with colorized visuals on the reverse field.
On the obverse of 2022 Colorized Silver Wombat Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. In this design, Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. This design was created for the Royal Mint in 2015 and came from Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark.
The reverse side of the 2022 1 oz Colorized Silver Wombat features the image of a wombat. The wombat is one of Australia’s many wombat species and is found throughout forested and mountainous regions of eastern Australia and Tasmania. In this design, the wombat is shown in left-profile relief with colorization that captures the accurate details of its typical fur colorization.
