The Platypus is the fourth design in the Australian Map Shaped Coin Series. The platypus is a semi-aquatic mammal found in Eastern Australia. It has a beaver tail, a duck bill and otter-like feet. It's unusual appearance caused much debate among scientists. Most insisted it was a fake. This coin is uniquely shaped like the map of Australia.
The obverse features the Queen Elizabeth II effigy by Ian Rank-Broadley and the words "ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2013 1 DOLLAR". The reverse depicts the struck design of a platypus against a coloured rain forest background highlighting a waterfall and a river.
The inscription "Platypus" appears above the platypus as well as the words "1 oz 999 Silver" with the year 2013 below it.
This coin comes in a grey clamshell case with a certificate of authenticity and has a limited mintage of 6,000 worldwide.
