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.

Please contact Silver.com if you have questions. We are available on the phone at 888-989-7223, online using our live chat, and via our email address.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
