Australia 1 oz Platinum Platypus BU (Random Year)


The first issue of the Platinum Platypus coin came out in 2011. A popular product produced by the Perth Mint of West Australia. The coin is authorized as the legal tender under the Australian Currency Act of 1965. More than a century old, Perth Mint is well-known for its exotic animal-themed coins. Most of these animals are unique to the Australian Continent. Given their worldwide recognition, Perth Mint products are extremely popular with collectors as well as investors.

Coin Features:

  • Made from 0.9995 fine platinum with a weight of 1 troy oz.
  • Brilliant Uncirculated Condition.
  • Obverse: Features a right facing bust portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. Inscriptions - “ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA,” “100 DOLLARS.”
  • Reverse: Features an image of a platypus diving below the water among the reeds. Inscriptions - “AUSTRALIAN PLATYPUS,” year of mintage, weight, purity, and content.
  • Displays “P” mint mark for being minted at Perth Mint, Australia.
  • Guaranteed by the Australian Mint.

A new metal is added to Australia’s official bullion coin program; platinum. One of the world’s most renowned mints, the Perth Mint has come out with the Platinum Platypus coin, a beautiful investment coin. Made from 99.95% purity, the finish is impeccable. This coin is backed by the Australian Government and is a legal tender issue.

The Australian Platinum Platypus was first issued in 2011. The design of the coin remains unchanged every year except with the year of mintage inscription. Only a limited quantity of 30,000 coins was minted in the first year, which proved to be few as the coin became extremely popular and sold out. The same limited mintage was maintained each year. In the succeeding years, the popularity of the coin soared high due to its fine design and its limited mintage.

This coin has a face value of $100 Australian Dollars with a premium that is slightly above its platinum value. In addition, the Platinum Platypus is minted using an advanced manufacturing technology, hence the finishing is that of a very high quality with perfect accuracy. Established in 1898, the Perth Mint is one of the oldest that still exists today. It was originally a branch of the British Royal Mint, but in 1931 it was freed and started minting coins for Australia.
