THE DREAMTIME PLATYPUS DESIGN IN PRECIOUS SILVER
 
The 1oz silver coin is housed in a presentation card, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and is Legal Australian Tender.
 
Platypuses are amazing creatures and iconic to Australia. They live beside freshwater rivers and lakes, where they create burrows for shelter and protection.

According to Aboriginal belief, all life - human, animal, bird and fish - is part of a vast unchanging network of relationships, which can be traced back to the great spirit ancestors of the Dreamtime.

The platypus has a number of different Aboriginal names, including boondaburra, mallingong and tambreet. In traditional Australian culture, the platypus is regarded as very special, and is one of the few animals that it is considered taboo to hunt or eat.

These outstanding 2011 Platypus Dreaming coins are struck by The Perth Mint on a mint-to order basis from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver. The coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

DESIGNS

Each coinís reverse was created by Darryl Bellotti, a Western Australian Indigenous artist of both Yamatji and Nyoongar descent, as a tribute to the platypus. The Perth Mintís ĎPí mintmark is included in the design.

Each coinís obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year-date and the monetary denomination.
