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 Platypus is one of the most unique mammals found in the world.
The Platypus lays eggs, is venomous, has a duck-bill, a beaver-tail and has webbed feet.
The Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) is found only in Eastern Australia and lives near rivers and lakes, where they create burrows for shelter and protection.
