          Comments about 2012 1 oz Australian Platinum Platypus:

          This is a nice looking coin with a dual finish (frosty bits and shiny bits). This duality also extends to the levity of the coin, which features the ever-present (and serious looking) head of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, and the ever-silly platypus on the reverse. I highly recommend it, not only for its looks, but also because 'platinum platypus' is so fun to say. Investing is serious but it does not have to be boring.

              What else would you want on a platinum coin? The egg-laying, duck-billed, beaver-tailed, otter-footed mammal that lays eggs instead of giving live birth. No, not Queen Elizabeth, on the other side: the Platypus!

                  This coin is fabulous! I am a very fussy collector and am amazed at the beauty of this Australian masterpiece. It looks like a reverse proof and the detail in the Queens's hair and crown is exceptional. For a coin that is usually sold as bullion it beats the collectible Eagles by the US Mint.
