The iconic platypus is the fourth design featured in the exciting Australia Map Shaped Coin Series.
The Australian platypus is one of the most unique creatures on earth, so unusual that it was once believed to be a hoax! This creature is egg-laying and produces milk for its young. Living along riverbanks and streams it possesses the rare sense of electroreception.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver, the coin features delightful original artistry and is captured in the shape of Australia.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, no more than 6,000 of these coins will be issued worldwide.
The coin’s coloured reverse depicts a platypus against the background of a tropical waterfall and river. The inscription PLATYPUS also appears in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark and year-date. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination appear on the coin’s obverse.
The coin is housed in a presentation case and custom-designed shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
