Australian Platinum Platypus
Australian Platinum Platypi are official, legal tender in Australia. As the first prominent country in the modern world to announce the production of 1 oz Platinum coin issues, Australia approved the minting of Platinum coins on June 18, 1987.
These 1 oz Platinum coins have a regal likeness of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, and the reverse has a precisely rendered platypus in its underwater environment. These commemorative Platinum coins celebrate the diversity and the uniqueness of Australian wildlife. The Australian Platinum coins are .9995 fine Platinum and come in protective plastic capsules. The Platinum coins are guaranteed by The Perth Mint, so you be sure of the quality.
