Sometimes referred to as the duck-billed platypus, the platypus is a semiaquatic mammal that is endemic to the coasts of eastern Australia and the island of Tasmania. The platypus is the only living member of its family and genus, but is related to a number of other related species found in the fossil record.

The platypus is the only mammal alive that is lays eggs rather than giving birth to live young. The species has become one of the many iconic and recognizable symbols of Australia as it is one of the many unique species found only on the continent. The Aboriginal people of Australia also hold the platypus in high regard within their cultures.

The obverse of 2021 1/3 oz Platinum Australian Platypus Coins features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is the longest-reigning monarch in English history and has been the monarch since 1952 when her father, King George VI, died. This design is the sixth-generation effigy of the Queen to grace Australian coins and it depicts the Queen at the age of 89.

On the reverse side of the 2021 Platinum Australian Platypus Coin is an image of the namesake animal. With the body and tail of a beaver, feet of an otter, and a duck-billed face, the platypus was once thought to be a hoax within the scientific community. Early specimens were believed by some scientists to have simply been sewn together using the parts of various other animals.

These 2021 1/3 oz Platinum Australian Platypus Coins are available to you for purchase online individually or in bulk. The coins arrive individually inside of protective flips, while multiples of 45 are available in plastic tubes.
