Why add this Dreaming Down Under series 2021-P Wombat Colorized Silver Proof coin to your collection?
The Perth Mint's Dreaming Down Under series concludes with this fifth and final release, which is a tribute to the baby wombat. Wombats are tiny when born, weighing only a few grams and measuring about 2 cm in length, approximately the actual size depicted on this coin!
Adorable Dozing Wombat Design
Obverse: The obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, encircled by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "2021," "AUSTRALIA" and "50 CENTS." This rendition of the Queen was designed by acclaimed artist Jody Clark, a sculptor/engraver for the British Royal Mint since 2012.
Reverse: A wombat joey is depicted in a deep slumber on the reverse, curled up in a nest filled with fluffy white down. The nest is surrounded by clusters of native Australian flowers in bloom, leaves, and an array varied winged creatures, depicted in a combination of engraved and colorized styles. Inscriptions include "1/2 OZ 9999 SILVER" and the Mint mark "P." The charming sleeping wombat image is part of the "Nested Babies Collection," which was originally crafted by Sydney based illustrator Elise Martinson as a giftware and stationery graphic.
