2018 $1 Australia At Night Platypus 1oz Silver Black Proof Coin

The platypus is an Australian icon. It is also no stranger to Australian coinage, thanks to the late, great Stuart Devlin's brilliant 20c design.

Created with a vivid Black Proof finish, the highly exclusive 2018 $1 Australia At Night Platypus 1oz Silver Black Proof Coin brings us the platypus at night - as we've never seen it before.

In 1799, the platypus was documented by a scientist for the first time. That scientist -naturalist Dr George Shaw - was so convinced that it was a hoax that he searched the pelt for stitches.

While scientists now know that there's nothing unnatural about the platypus' odd combination of features, there's still plenty of mystery surrounding this uniquely Australian creature.

The producers of this Niue legal tender coin have used 1oz of 99.9% silver to capture the platypus. That silver has been crafted to the upmost quality, and graced with a glossy Black Proof finish. Its superb visual appeal is testament to modern minting technology - but also the merits of traditional numismatic sculpture. With the platypus evoked in stunning, silver-hued relief, it's a perfect union of old and new.

This stunning coin is housed in a glossy, black presentation case - the perfect stage for such an eye-catching coin and will be accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Secure now. Only 1,000 coins will be released worldwide!
