The final release in this cute series depicts a baby wombat. The wombat is a marsupial native to Australia. Despite its fearless nature, the wombat has a short-legged muscular frame, which causes him to move slowly.
Because of its stature, the wombat is known for taking short cuts.
Wombats are generally not seen, but leave ample evidence of their passage. The wombat has a backwards-facing pouch, so that while digging burrows, dirt does not spill over its young.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality with a large 36mm diameter, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 10,000 Australian Bush Babies II - Wombat 1/2oz Silver Proof Coins.
The coin’s reverse depicts an irresistible coloured image capturing the uniqueness and charm of a beautiful baby wombat. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design features a ‘friendly’ Australian insect and delicately frosted representations of Australian bush flowers.
The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and 2013 year-date.
Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a display case and box-shipper portraying more stunning imagery.
