1oz. Australian Platinum Platypus Bullion Coin





The 1oz. Australian Platinum Platypus is the first platinum bullion coin produced by the Perth Mint since it discontinued production of the Australian Platinum Koala in 2000.

The platinum platypus bullion coin is struck from one ounce blanks of 99.95% pure platinum.

The Platypus is one of the most unique mammals found in the world.

The Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) is found only in Eastern Australia and lives near rivers and lakes, where they create burrows for shelter and protection.
