These 2007-dated coins are struck from 1/2oz, 1/10oz and 1/25oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality. (1/2oz denomination used in obverse illustration.)

Fauna Theme ā€“ Platypus

The coin’s reverse depicts a Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus ). Living in fresh water lakes and streams in eastern Australia, this extraordinary-looking creature possesses a beaver-like coat, webbed feet, a broad tail and an amazingly electro-sensitive bill, which is used to forage for prey, including insects, amphibians and small fish. The year-date and The Perth Mint’s traditional ā€˜Pā€™ mintmark also appear in the design.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 , the coins depict Ian Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
