2022 Australian Wombat 1oz .9999 Silver Coloured Coin in Card
The Perth Mint is pleased to present this wonderful 1oz silver bullion finish coin celebrating an iconic Australian marsupial. The wombat is a sturdy quadruped found in forested, mountainous and heathland areas of eastern Australia and Tasmania.
With powerful limbs and sharp flat claws, it is ideally built for digging. At up to one meter in length, it is one of the largest burrowing animals in the world.
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,500 of the Wombat 2022 1oz Silver Coloured Coin in Card.
The coin portrays a coloured representation of one of Australia’s best-known marsupials – the wombat. As well as the inscription ‘WOMBAT’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the reverse includes the coin’s weight, purity and 2022 year-date.
The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
The Wombat 2022 1oz Silver Coloured Coin is presented in a themed presentation card with a fold-out stand for an upright display.
