Australia is home to a dizzying array of animals found nowhere else in the world. One of those critters is the funky Wombat, a chunky marsupial that, despite sharing many traits with its more well-known cousins like the Koala and Kangaroo, has its own distinctive traits that makes it unique in the menagerie from the Land Down Under.

A wombat is sort of like a prairie dog that has hulked out on steroids. An average-sized Wombat looks and acts sort of like a prairie dog only it’s around three feet long, weighs between 45 to 80 pounds, and has short legs and sharp claws with which it uses to dig tunnels and burrow underground. And, like Kangaroos and Koalas, it nurtures its young in a pouch. There’s a big difference with Wombats, however. Instead of having its pouch in the front, female Wombat pouches are in the back, where their young are protected during the critter’s constant need to dig. Its no wonder the Aboriginal word for Wombat means “burrowing marsupial.” What’s more, Wombats are so culturally significant in Australia that Wombat Day is observed each year on October 22. The Wombat depicted on this legal-tender Australian silver dollar is shown standing on all fours, perhaps taking a break from its incessant burrowing.

Each coin available here has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) as being in flawless Uncirculated Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded coins have ZERO imperfections—showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has certified that these Silver Wombats are First Releases (FR) coins, a designation that means they were received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of the coin’s release. Each will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder and encapsulated with a special Australian flag label.
