2012 Australian Platypus Launched Today

Topics [ Australian Platypus platinum bullion coin ]


We’re delighted to announce the release of the 2012 Australian Platypus.

Struck from 1oz of 99.95% pure platinum, the Australian legal tender coin features an extremely attractive design of a diving platypus. No more than 30,000 coins will be released.

Issued for the first time in 2011, the Australian Platypus sold out its initial annual mintage, reflecting healthy investor interest in platinum as a safe-haven hard asset in times of financial uncertainty.

Buyers please note this coin is available from The Perth Mint by telephone only. Please call the Bullion Desk during trading hours on the following number:

•   1300 201 112 Australia Only (local call cost)
•   +61 8 9421 7218 International Callers

Alternatively, please contact your authorised Perth Mint bullion coin distributor or visit The Perth Mint Shop in person.
