Limited mintage of only 8,000 coins!
Second of a new eight coin series featuring Australia’s favorite nocturnal animals.
The Wombat coin features an inner panel design of a wombat detailed in pure Australian opal. The outer panel of the coin depicts Bottlebrush leaves and blossoms, a waxing crescent moon and the Southern Cross - a renowned star group which is only visible in the Southern hemisphere, design by Aleysha Howarth. The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse.
Presented in a prestigious display case, a light turns on as you open the case, highlighting the opal design and symbolizing moonlight, shining down on the nocturnal koala. Also inside an illustrated shipper and a numbered CoA.
The wombat is a marsupial native to Australia and known for its determined personality.
Wombats are completely herbivorous and feed from a variety of grasses, roots, fungi, shrubs, bark and mosses. The wombat has a backwards-facing pouch, so that while digging burrows, dirt does not spill over its young.
Like many Australian mammals, this unique creature is nocturnal. It will sleep most of the day in its burrow, and at dusk or at night will forage for food.

Comments about 2012 1 oz Proof Silver The Wombat- Australian Opal Series:
Another knockout from Australia. The light hitting that opal is amazing. Just the detail of the coin itself is incredible. Got to track me down the Koala, and Kangaroo, to keep my set alive. Love the mints attention to detail.
