Product Information

 

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.

99.99% Pure Gold

These coins are struck from 10g and 2.5g of 99.99% pure gold.

Unusual Rectangle Shape

The rectangular coins are the perfect shape for the Indigenous-style art portrayed on their reverses.

Popular Aboriginal Art

Each 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.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, each coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.

Illustrated Presentation Pack

The Platypus Dreaming coins are housed in beautifully illustrated, themed presentation packs.

Certificate of Authenticity

Each coin is issued with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Mint-to-Order

The coins are struck on a mint-to-order basis only.
