Very cute, and I do like the coin, but it's one of the series that falls into the 'too much' category, and you gave very sensible advice about overextending! I wish I'd heard it earlier lol!
It is definitely one for  @ArcaneCollector . It's a shame there isn't a beastie called a quokbat. He could identify as one of those.
I think the bird on the wombat's rump is a Fairy Wren, and the hedgehog is Mrs. Tiggywinkle, by Beatrix Potter.
Also, the wombat is the only animal to have cubic poo.
That's enough smartassery from me for the moment.

I obviously want the wombat coin. However being a collector means I have to have all in the series and the first two wombats are ridiculously overpriced. They must have had low mintage or something. I’m not sure what to do…hmmm

Here is the big problem I think you and many others will face.

The mints bought the Silver at X price which was high.... they minted the coins, but have to sell them for XX ... despite silver and gold dropping, And JUST like the petrol companies... they are reluctant to reduce that cost onto dealers, And the dealers are stuck with higher costs for XX silver coin.... and they will loose if they sell it for less than they paid for it.
Shocked
