Wombats are small, muscular marsupials native to Australia. Despite their diminutive stature, they have powerful claws and limbs, which helps them to burrow into the ground and build impressive tunnel networks. As marsupials, the female wombat is blessed with a special pouch to carry her joey. But in a clever twist, the wombat’s pouch is actually upside down! This allows the mother to burrow through the earth without kicking dirt into the face of her young.

The obverse of 2023 1 oz Australian Silver Wombat Coins features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. This effigy originally debuted in 2015 and has since become one of the most popular portraits of Her Late Majesty. In it, she faces right while wearing both the Coronation Necklace and the George IV State Diadem.
On the reverse of 2023 Colorized Australian Silver Wombat Coins, there is a sleeping wombat design. If you look closely, you will also spot a blue fairywren perched on the wombat’s back. The reverse also includes hallmark inscriptions along the rim as well as the Perth mintmark.
