Limited Mintage of 6,000 Coins!
The 2013 1 oz Australian Platypus Silver Map Shaped Coin from the Perth Mint is now available in brand new, brilliant uncirculated condition. These coins will ship in their original Perth Mint packaging with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity. Each coin contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver and has been struck in the shape of the Australian continent.
The Perth Mint is headquartered on the Western Coast of Australia and was established as an extension of the Royal Mint of England in 1899. It has since broken away from the English Royal Mint and has created its own identity as being Australias premier coin-producing entity. Most often, Perths coins represent some of Australias most identifying characteristics, such as their wildlife. The 2013 map-shaped Silver Platypus coin celebrates both an animal that calls Australia home, but also celebrates the country of Australia.
The shape of the 2013 1 oz Australian Silver Platypus is designed to look exactly like the continent of Australia. Though it takes on a strange shape, the coin itself is comprised of 1 troy ounce of .999 pure silver. The design of the reverse side is colorized and depicts a platypus in front of a forest sanctuary, complete with a raging waterfall. Towards the top of the coin is an inscription which reads Platypus as well as the 1 oz weight and .999 purity indications. Beneath the central image is another inscription reading 2013. In the central region of the coins obverse you will find the profile image of Queen Elizabeth II with inscriptions surrounding her image. These inscriptions read Australia 2013, Elizabeth II, and 1 Dollar.
With a purity of .999 and a limited mintage of only 6,000, these coins are the envy of both collectors and investors from around the world. Adding to their popularity is the fact that this coin is shaped differently than most every other coin produced by the Perth Mint.
Every 2013 1 oz map-shpaed Australian Silver Platypus will be shipped to you in its unique Perth Mint packaging. In addition to this, every shipment will be fully insured against the unlikely occurrence of damage or loss during the shipping process.
