Product Details

This innovative 2013 1 oz Silver Proof Map-Shaped Platypus coins hails from the Perth Mint located in Australia. Despite its uncommon shape, it is in fact issued as legal tender and designated with a face value of $1. This proof coin has been specially minted to have polished, mirror-like fields and frosted devices. Each Platypus coin comes in its own display box accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. This remarkable coin has a low limited mintage of only 6,000.

Taking center stage on the reverse of this coin is a detailed image of the billed Platypus. In the background behind the Platypus, a colorized image of a waterfall spilling into a pond is surrounded by a tropical forest. The year-date is placed below the image, while above the colorized scene, "PLATYPUS" and "1 oz 999 SILVER" are inscribed. The obverse shows the likeness of the Queen Elizabeth facing toward the right, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. The inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA 2013," and "1 DOLLAR" appear around Her Majesty's portrait.

With a slew of interesting colorized, Proof, and Piedfort coins, the Perth Mint has developed a reputation for pushing the artistic limits of coinage. The Australian Map-Shaped Coin series is yet another intriguing step in this direction. Taking into account their extremely limited mintage and uncommon dimensions, these Platypus coins won't last long!
