COINSPLUS NOW SPECILAIZES IN COINS
Platypuses are amazing creatures and iconic to Australia. They live beside freshwater rivers and lakes, where they create burrows for shelter and protection.
According to Aboriginal belief, all life - human, animal, bird and fish - is part of a vast unchanging network of relationships, which can be traced back to the great spirit ancestors of the Dreamtime.
The platypus has a number of different Aboriginal names, including boondaburra, mallingong and tambreet. In traditional Indigenous culture, the platypus is regarded as very special, and is one of the few animals that it is considered taboo to hunt or eat.
The coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver.
The rectangular coinsis the perfect shape for the Indigenous-style art portrayed on the reverse.
The coin’s reverse was created by Darryl Bellotti, a Western Australian Indigenous artist of both Yamatji and Nyoongar descent, as a tribute to the platypus. The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark is included in the design.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
The Platypus Dreaming coin is housed in a beautifully illustrated, themed presentation pack.
The coin is issued with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The Coin Sheriff program allows our members to request an audit on any auction, which is completed by an independent Numismatic Specialist who assesses the accuracy of the item description and pictures.
