The first coin in this spectacular new series sold out, so it’s advisable to move quickly to secure the second release featuring the wonderful wombat.
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.
