The Next Generation Series of silver for sale from the Perth Mint offers designs showcasing the maternal side of the animal kingdom. While it is easy for humans to simply look at animals as simple creatures, they are in reality more like the human species than many realize. First and foremost, many animal species deliver the same level of care to their young that humans offer their babies. Each Next Generation Series silver design shows a native Australian species with its young on a stunning, thick silver blank. Today, 2021 2 oz Silver Australian Mother & Baby Platypus Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

Also known as the duck-billed platypus, the platypus is part of the echidna species and represents one of the five extant species of monotremes. The platypus is endemic to the eastern coast of Australia and Tasmania where it is the only living member of its mammalian family and genus. Like the beaver in North America, the platypus was once widely hunted on the Australian continent for its fur. Today, however, it enjoys a protected status that ensures it is not targeted by hunters.

All of the 2021 2 oz Silver Australian Mother & Baby Platypus Coins available here come with bulk packaging or singular packaging. While individual coins are offered in protective flips, multiples come with Perth Mint packaging of plastic tubes for 10 coins and Monster Boxes for 100 coins. The box holds 10 separate 10-coin tubes. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Next Generation Series coins have a micro-laser engraved security feature on the reverse. It is hidden within the text inscriptions and is only visible under magnification.

On the obverse side of 2021 Silver Australian Mother & Baby Platypus Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The longest-reigning monarch of England, Elizabeth II holds the dual-title as Queen of Australia as well in her role as the head of the Commonwealth. The portrait of the Queen includes the George IV State Diadem on her head and represents the sixth-generation effigy of the Queen on Australian coins.

The reverse of 2021 2 oz Silver Mother & Baby Platypus Coins includes a depiction of a mother platypus as it swims in the water with its newborn baby. You’ll notice these coins are what is referred to as a piedfort blank. The coin has the diameter of a traditional 1 oz silver coin, but is twice as thick to accommodate the 2 Troy oz of silver content.
