Animals better than political symbols

By  Robert

from Jersey City, NJ


Coins displaying pictures of rare and beautiful animals are preferable in my opinion to coins displaying political symbols. It also helps to know that the Platypus coin is marketed at a lower premium over spot than the competition. However, it is not clear whether Platinum coins will turn out to be a good investment.

Love the Platypus

By  Zero Calvin

from Spring Lake, NJ


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.

Love my Plat-Plats

By  Dan from Oregon

from Oregon, USA


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!

An excellent investment.

By  Bob

Great value, very well made and designed. Will grow in value.


from CA


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.


from BC


A great option for those who want to invest in physical Platinum.
