Platinum Platypus To Continue In 2014

Topics [ Australian Platypus platinum bullion coin ]


Decreased investor demand for platinum during 2013 means that we are capping the mintage of last year’s Australian Platypus 1oz platinum bullion coin at 2,000.

Some stock remains to be sold, which we are confident of achieving, before the 2013 coin is formally declared sold out.

To make this absolutely clear, no more than 2,000 Australian Platypus coins dated 2013 will be struck.

Looking forward, we are pleased to announce that the 2014 Australian Platypus 1oz platinum bullion coin will be available from 1 February 2014.

Made from 99.95% pure platinum, the 2014 coin has an unlimited mintage, however, production will be closed off at the end of the year pending the announcement of its final mintage.

The annual Australian Platypus bullion coin portrays a platypus diving underwater amongst reeds. Unavailable online, Platypus coins can be ordered from our Bullion Desk on 1300 201 112, or +61 8 9421 7218 for international callers.
